AQUARIST INFORMATION
Fp. schwoiseri may be a bit of an enigma when it comes to identification.  Some authors say it is sympatric with Fp. fallax.  Collier lists it as a separate species in Phylogenetic Relationships of African Killifishes in the Genera Aphyosemion and Fundulopanchax Inferred from Mitochondrial DNA Sequences, William J. Murphy and Glen E. Collier.Radda, 1974 gave Fp. schwoiseri full specific status in 1975.  Sterba considered this sp. to come from Ghana in his work Freshwater Fishes of the World.

As for the aquarist, Fp. schwoiseri has few reported successful spawnings.  It does not appear to be in the hobby at this time.
