| Type locality: The original description does not acurately represent the true type collection. It is because it is a generalization of “mouths of the Niger”. While this is most likely the Niger delta no direct information is available to validate it. Its distribution is relagated to the Niger Delta and a little further to the northeast.
The fish is located in coastal rainforest small brooks and rivers as well as swampy areas.
Generally, Fp. arnoldi is spawned over peat moss or a alternate material such as coconut fiber. The eggs are placed on peat using the wet peat method and is incubated for 6-10 weeks. Eggs should be check regularly to look for development. A gold rim around a black eye is an good indicator the eggs are ready to hatch. Placed in water they should all hatch with 24 hours.
The fry can take newly hatched brine shrimp immediately.
