Nothobranchius neumanni

provided by wikipedia EN

Nothobranchius neumanni is a species of killifish in the family Nothobranchiidae.[2] It is endemic to Tanzania. It occurs in both perennial and seasonal wetlands including rivers, lakes and ponds where it most likely feeds on planktonic crustaceans.[1] This species was described as Fundulus neumanni by Franz Hilgendorf in 1905.[3] The specific name honours Hilgendorf's companion on some of his expeditions to Africa, the German ornithologist Oscar Neumann (1867-1946).[4]
