Anyone local into Killifish?

Just wondering if there are any killie people near me.

I have some fry that if they all make it to adults I will need to trade or sell.

Well that's just like.........your opinion man.

I'm not local; sorry. But I just got into killifish and have four pairs. It's too bad more people don't keep them. I love mine. I can see how some of the care requirements can scare people off.

All of the literature says they have to be kept in species tanks, aren't good community fish and can't be mixed for fear of hybridization. I set up three new tanks for my fish. That's a lot of work! A pair of A. Australe killies are going into a 10 gallon that already houses two female badis badis.

Good luck to you. You've got great fish. List them on aquabid or on a forum specific to your state. They are too good to go unwanted.

Yeah personally I don't buy into all the myths about killies I have kept them in community setups for years feeding them flake with multiple species of killies in the same set ups (with different genus' of course) and can still breed them successfully whenever I want. Personally I don't see the point of keeping such beautiful fish in cramped unlit containers buried somewhere in a fishroom. Not that there is anything wrong with that it's just not my style.

Got any pics of your set up?

I'm going to keep my pairs in separate nano cubes, with the exception of the australe. Maybe I'll start a community tank with fish from different genera. I have one pair each of f. gardneri, f. amieti, a. australe and n. rachovii. I feel that the fundulopanchax may need more space.

A colony tank would be awesome, too.
