I suppose i could grow them a bit in the seven before putting them in the 30 gallon with my females... Do you think they would be compatible?

I have no idea lol I'm just learning about them, before last night I didn't even know they existed. I would think they are a little colorful and peaceful for Bettas?

My females have accepted some colorful platys into their schoal, so maybe the killifish would fit in as well? XD i dunno... it will still be a while, maybe by then i can have a ten gallon set up for a few.

I'm really not sure what the hatch rate is on them either, I have heard people saying they get a pair out of 30 eggs. I'll probably be buying a few types in hopes to get a decent pair. They are gorgeous arn't they? So much researching to do!

Well i suppose if i only get a few out of a $10 batch of mixed eggs, i wont be too upset. lol

Found on e-bay that people are selling mixed batches of 60+ eggs for $10 with free shipping.

Sorry, Pitluvs, my killi expert wasn't there last night! :( I'll try and get in touch with him on the forums, if I can.

The killifish expert at my local club says that killies are generally easy to hatch, and most are easy to spawn. Panchax and gardneri seem to be the easiest species. If you have any specific questions, make me a list and I can ask him at the fish meeting tonight, if you like. :)
I said some, and sorry to burst any ones bubble but these fish can be quite challenging and may require live food but will for sure. Their water needs to be very soft and acidic. I would recommend a species tank with a peat substrate.

Thank You! That's the sorta info I was needing :) Our water is very basic (8ppm) so this is something we'll have to pass on :)
