Abstract: In the title compound, (C5H7N2)2[Ni(H2O)6](SO4)2, the NiII cation is located on an inversion centre and is coordinated by six aqua ligands in a slightly distorted octa­hedral coordination environment. The [Ni(H2O)6]2+ ions are connected through an extensive network of O-H...O hydrogen bonds to sulfate anions, leading to the formation of layers parallel to (001). The 4-amino­pyridinium cations are located between these layers and are connected to the anionic framework by N-H...O hydrogen bonds. Weak [pi]-[pi] inter­actions between the pyridine rings, with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.754 (9) Å, provide additional stability to the crystal packing.
