Let’s see Your Killies…


Hi, Pals
I didn’t see much Killies threads here, but I’m sure – here are plenty of their fans!
So, let’s begin one big Killies pictures thread and have a fun…
I received a nice gift from a friend last Sunday,
and it’s inspire me to clean at last all my killies tanks and make a looooong photo series of these my lovely pets….
I will begin with those two Killies specimens of the Nothobranchius family,
whose are a part of that gift - Nothobranchius Rachovii "Kruger National Park"
and Nothobranchius Rachovii Beira '98




Nothobranchius Rachovii - Kruger N. Park







Nothobranchius Rachovii Beira '98





and here are a two detailed fragments to make some comparison:






So, before continue I hope to see some of your Killies photos
and know how much Fans we are at all…!?

yay Hristo!
I don't have any killis but I love them. Do they get along with most docile fish?


BTW I spoke with my publisher friend. I am trying to get the ball rolling on our project. i think these killies should star in a book of their own!

Hristo - I was so happy to see you post a killie thread! I have a lovely pair of Epiplatys dageti up at my work that I should try to take some pictures of. They are some of the neatest fish ever. Your photos are, as always, absolutely beautiful!!!

I am sure there is a killifish club in the greater boston area. At the very least the local tropical fish club will have members who breed killies. As alway you will get better quality fish for less money throught the club members.

(That's a female.)


I also have the same ones (Aplocheilus lineatus), but my female doesn't have the black vertical lines (bred in captivity for too long?). I know it's a female, because the 2 spawn like crazy after a water change and have produce fry. They are the only 2 killies that I have. They are soon to be going to a new home. I have pics, but I'l post later.

Hi, Lynn!
What kind of "most docile fish" do you mean...?
There are too much specimens of Killies, but more of them are very specific...
Your choice also, depending on do you want to breed them or just have for pleasure( like me)
Some of my Killies live successfully with some of Tetras, Rainbows, Colisas, Catfishes…

I’m looking forward for any news about our project…


Jen, I’m glad you keeping Killies too and waiting to see yours…

Hi, Osiris and organic sideburns!
Thanks for sharing your Killies! Aplocheilus lineatus is very popular in Bulgaria also.
I have plenty of those specimen, but will post the photos of him lattely...
May be I’ll miss for a week, from tomorrow, because I’m going to visit the Chesh Aqua Festival’2006 (October 19 – 22) (Aqua Festival 2005)
I hope there will be much interesting things to see and photographing...

Who said that Killies couldn’t smile…



Those Guy even came to “photographic stage” very inadvertent and unshaven…
