Eggs or adults? They are non-annuals so you can hatch them out using my method. I have found aeration, water changes and use of multi-cure to almost completely prevent fungusing.

Also, it's recommended not to house two gardneri species where the females can intermix. They can be next to impossible to tell apart in some cases. If you ever accidentally get some crossbreeding, the resulting fry should always be sold as aquarium strain as they are not pure.

This is what I have gleaned from my brief submersion into the killifish side of things.

In other awesome news, finally going to get my hands on some licorice gourami! They remind me so much of wild bettas, I have set-up their tank with lots of leaf litter, peat and java moss.

No problems. I love killifish they always look like they are smiling, and their colours are just spectacular. There are some makurdi available through our wholesaler here that I have been tempted to put in a order for through my LFS.

I am hopefully getting some Fp. gardneri gold, Chromaphyosemion biateniatum lagos and Fp. cinnamomeous eggs sent to me. I want to start owning all the killifish again haha

Be sure to post some pictures!

Those guys are beautiful! Another user here (well over on TFK) just put in an order for Sphaerichthys vaillanti, another tiny and beautiful gourami.

Yeah I asked the guy at my LFS whether licorice gouramis were a legal import here in Australia. He said they were and then suddenly this week he had some in stock. Coincidence, I think not! Haha.

There were some of those Sphaerichthys vaillanti for sale up in QLD. The colours on the ones I've seen online have been stunning.

I like this variety of licorice gourami

Would love to get my hands on some of those.

Those gourami's are so amazing D: I didn't even know gourami's could look that amazing.

A few more of my guppies XD They move so fast lol
Including the guppies I posted earlier I have 6 adults all together. Only one not pictured was a yellow guppy who photographs horrible for some reason









And since I've brought in the lilly I now have a very large number of ramshorn snails lol. I like these guys when they're little and grow up alone so they don't reproduce but now they're all over XD I probably have close to 150 in the pond outside and at least 12 in my 48g but probably more. I have one big ramshorn in my 10g who's pretty cool and I like him XD
