sp aff ornatipinnis is an undescribed sp, close to, but different from, ornatipinnis.
Ornatipinis is described from the region of Moba (RDC) and its caracteristic is the dorsal fin with first rays as long as the other ones.
Your fish has 1rst rays shorter, so it's not ornatipinnis.
I'm not sure that the true ornatipinnis has never been kept in aquariums.
