The title complex, [Ni(C10H10N6)2][Ni(CN) 4]·2H2O, contains an octa-hedral nickel(II) cation and a square-planar nickel(II) anion. Both the cation and the anion reside on a crystallographic center of inversion. The NiII center in the cation is coordinated by six pyrazol-1-yl rings of two chelating tripyrazol-1-ylmethane [HC(pz)3] ligands, with Ni - N distances that range between 2.0647 (19) and 2.0828 (19) Å. The NiII center in the anion is coordinated by four cyanide ligands, with Ni - C distances in the range 1.869 (2)-1.869 (3) Å. The [Ni(CN)4]2- anions are linked by inversion-related water mol-ecules into extended chains that run parallel to the a axis.
