Type Locality: Gill used ‘Gaboon River’ which is probably not a valid name.
The area of distribution is Northwestern Gabon into Equatorial Guinea. Epiplatys sexfasciatus inhabits the lower Komo, Ogowe River drainages and the Estuary of Gabon.
The habitat is small rivers streams, pools and swamps.
Some breeders consider Epiplatys sexfasciatus a challenge. Eggs are found in fine leafed plants and spawning mops. Incubation takes about 12-14 days. Fry will accept newly hatched brine shrimp as a first food.
NOTE: Epiplatys sexfasciatus and Epiplatys infrafasciatus are often used for the same species leading to some confusion. KillieNutz Online has created separate pages for each. It would be nice for some taxonomist to qualify this topic.
