"On my trip to Gabon in the 1988, together with Roland Numrich, we discovered not far from the village Sindara a colorful Epiplatys species. It resembles a little bit Epiplatys huberi, but the last years so many new species have been described - so probably our Epiplatys sp. "Sindara" will follow sooner or later. In 2001, on my trip with Steffen Hellner, we collected this fish again and Heinz Ott, who is specialized in Epiplatys could keep this variety until now. Some month ago he returned three pairs to me - and was happy to breed them again - as the males are so beautiful" - Friedrich Bitter, Dec 19, 2013, Facebook.
