It is likely Nothobranchius guentheri.
Killifish from East Africa.
This is the color you would need to breed. Do you have females for this?
Small basin, 6 cm peat fibers on the bottom. They dig in while spawning. Win the Grains!
The lifespan of the parents is only less than a year. Because of the dry season.

I disagree, definitely moreso resembling Nothobranchius Orthonotus also from EA with the spotted body

However, the spotted banding has me stumped. Maybe you’re right maybe I am, maybe neither of us are. I’m very new to aquatic taxonomy

Only thing throwing me off is, I have never seen guentheri with such defined spots and stripes before.

I am delighted that someone is dealing with these beautiful fish.
Look at the link.
For a few years we had three species in the region: Guentheri, Rachovi and Palmquisti.
I bred Guentheri and Rachovi for a while.
It's problematic. The transition to the new breeder. It has to be done quickly. The lifespan is short and when there is a splendid color, must be breeded so that grains can be won again.
Take a few more nice pictures, then it's over.
