I have now increased my killifish collection by four more fish. I also have another two pairs and two sets of eggs coming my way later this week/early next week.

Here's a belated photo of two of my killifish tanks



The others are still settling in and are a little skittish.

Now I just wish I could convince my guys to get in there and use their spawning mop.

I use Seriously Fish as a basic guide to stocking levels, adult size and spawning.

However, this site had more information than I could shake a stick at.

http://www.aka.org/wak/Genera_Index.htm

Off the top of my head, I believe panchax and gardneri species males can be aggressive towards each other. But don't quote me on it as I am a novice.

However, I got two eggs from my australe and two from my striatum pair in their spawning mops, so here's hoping I can get a few more!

I bought two male gardneri last night! So pretty. I believe mine are blue lyretails. They are currently living in my sorority, but I have a place to rehome them to if things go pear-shaped. :)

If things are still ok in a month, when everyone moves to the 20 gallon, I will consider adding a pair of females and breeding them. Luckily the local Killi club is always on hand to consult, and the guy who bred them can give me advice. :)

I am getting two adult pairs and two lots of eggs from Serkan (he goes by killieorcory on most forums), and I just enquired about a pair of chocolate australe from Jodi-Lea.

Hoping to get my blasted betta barracks finished so I can shove all my males into there and open up some more fish room space.

Serkan is our local killi expert! It was his presentation, the first night at the local aquarium society, that made me want killies. :) I believe he bred the grand or great grandparents of my two boys.

Haha I thought you might know him. I kept seeing his eggs and fish up on OzFishyBids and then there were three separate species in at my not so local FS so I was pretty quickly hooked.

For me, they are a sort of cross between wild bettas and splendens.
