AQUARIST INFORMATION
A Fundulopanchax species that has undergone some overall confusion as to its correct identity over the years.  The first importation of Fp. deltaense came in the early 20th century and underwent a couple of name changes.   The name comes from the natural habitat in Niger Delta swamps in southern Nigeria

In the United States, Fp. deltaense was referred to as Pt. NSC-7 and also erroneously as A. fallax.
