In the title compound, (C6H16N)[Ni(C9H4N2O3)(C9H5N2O3)], the NiIIion is four-coordinated by two N atoms and two O atoms from two indane-1,2,3-trione-1,2-dioxime ligands. The two organic ligands are linked by an intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bond. In the crystal, molecules are linked by N-HO hydrogen-bonds.
