Nice looking fish! I currently have aphyosemion australe gold and gardneri. I house them all in separate containers (no heater or airstones) in my kitchen. I harvest eggs from prs and trios every couple of weeks. I keep two spawning mops in each container and duck weed, java moss or java fern with the eggs/fry. I feed the adults flakes, frozen blackworms and live blackworms.

I've a few Jordanella floridae. My male is in love with a female firemouth. He is almost always at her side. Odd little fish.

Reading this thread makes me jealous. Was heavy into killies in the early 80s. Think its time to get back at it.

I am so tempted to buy some eggs and get into these beautiful fish. My two main concerns are 1.) whether the tanks you put them in have to be airtight due to their love of jumping, and 2.) whether they'd get along with the celestial pearl danios they'd have to live with.

I have a pair of Aphyosemion primigenium. Very hardy and easy spawners, great fish overall. Hopefully I can source some A. ogoense soon.
