The Orange Bushfish (Microctenopoma ansorgii) is also known as the “Ornate Ctenopoma” and is a small related of the more common gouramis. They have brown bodies with darker brown vertical bands. The bands extend into the fins where they are separated by brighter reddish-orange patches.
Microctenopoma ansorgii is the most colourful of the African anabantoids and is much sought after by hobbyists. A male in full breeding dress is truly a sight to behold.
