Good luck with the hatching. Are they annuals or non-annuals? My first attempt at hatching killifish eggs was a bit disastrous. A fungus got into them and then my three successful hatched fry ended up as bellysliders.

If you are doing non-annuals, I found lots of aeration (I used an air stone at the bottom of my hatching container), daily water changes of the egg water and a couple of drops of multi-cure (it has like malachite green as an ingredient) really stopped fungus dead in its tracks. I had an almost 100% hatch rate of the eggs I harvested except I got an ammonia spike in my fry tank and they all died.

Successful fry grower-outer I am not haha

If you're a serious betta breeder, Mo, I completely understand wanting to focus on bettas. Why would someone not understand that? I know a goldfish breeder who has nothing but tons of goldfish... some of which are rare breeds imported from Japan. It just makes sense. But then again, common sense isn't.

I've got too short of an attention span to focus on one fish. Plus I like too many fish to have just a few tanks.

I know I've shared these shots with my friends over on the TFK side, but I thought I'd share them with you guys, too. I finally got pictures of my loaches!!


This is how I usually see them. Attractive, no? If you can even see the little thing. It's just his tail sticking out.


And then I finally got this shot!! ^-^ And then adjusted a few things to make it better.

While I was drudging through my volumes of photography, I found some neat shots of fish from when I worked for the US Forestry Service.


Creek chub underwater. Really common little guys. You can also go fly fishing for them.


Redfin darter. We caught him with a backpack electro-shocker. They're hardy enough to keep in aquariums.


Pumpkinseed sunfish. Beautiful little things.

These are some fish shots from my recent trip to South Carolina. The island we were on had a small nature center. In it they have a salt marsh tank with critters taken from the marshes around the island. Neat little fish in there.


Oyster toadfish.


Mummichog. They are a type of killifish native to the eastern coast of the US.


Some crab. I'm calling him "king crab" because he looks more adorned than this next guy.



Regular crab :P

If they are annuals they will have a different hatching method. I personally haven't hatched annuals before, but if you ever do get any non-annuals, the method I outlined above should see you through.

Killifish are fun. I am getting some eggs sent after a bacterial infection wiped out nearly all my pairs.

Haha! They seemed to have pretty poor security. I'm sure you could sneak off with a 200 gal tank in the night!

I dunno if I posted these already, but here are some comet goldfish in my pond. This year marks the second pair of surviving fry reaching maturity.
