Haha, oh you bet. :D It might take several months to get them going. I know there are at least 3 fry still in the 20gal, hiding in the plants. One is quite large but isn't tricolored. She spends a lot of time out in the open but the smaller ones stay in the wisteria. And I dunno, the father may end up being a double swordtail. His tail isn't quite normal. Not sure how I feel about that.

Took these photos of my killifish australe male in one of the rare occasions he was out of the moss. I forgot to clean the glass on the back side of the tank which explains the big smear.

At work we almost always have gold wonder killifish


But sometimes in the shipments these come in on accident, it's called a striped panchax killifish. Anyone ever heard of these?

Looks similar to what is sold here by one wholesaler as Aplocheilus dayi. Nice fish, I was thinking of getting some myself once I had enough room and money.

LBF, your australe male is gorgeous! Too bad he hides all that glorious coloring in the moss. :)

There are a few striped panchax killis. The only one I'm really familiar with is Daget's Panchax and I don't think that guy is it.

He is out more now I took a lot of the moss away to put in another tank. He and the missus were investigating the spawning mop I had put in so hopefully they start to use that.

If they lay their eggs in the moss the sparkling gouramis come and thieve them all.

This site contains so many different types of killifish with stackloads of info about each one. I use it when I want to make a list of all the killifish I lust after and that are not allowed to be imported into this country haha

The AKA annual convention was in Missouri this year. I read about it in a fish magazine and was immediately envious that I couldn't go.
