Gary just reminded me - P. cyanodorsalis isdefinitely an omni-spawner :-)
Killifish are often classified as top or substrate spawners but these guys
spawn anywhere - even on the glass!

Also I remember trying to get eggs from Harvey's creek Signifers from mops
and not having much luck - then transferred them to another tank and heaps
of fry hatched out from the gravel.
