my new killie

Just picked up a new male/female pair of killiefish over the weekend. The store didn't have them identified by scientific name and the common name they gave was clearly wrong, so I'm still trying to get a positive ID. But he's a beauty, so I wanted to share the pic with everyone. Enjoy!

EDIT: got someone from a local aquarium club to ID it for me. Aphyosemion striatum, in case anyone is interested.

Ya it took me a while to figure out how to get the pic attached. You should be able to see it now.

Yes, I only put up one pic. The female is pretty much a silvery color with just the slightest pinkish/purplish hue to her and a few little speckles. She's actually a bit more shy and I've only gotten one pic of her that is even semi-good.
