Re: killifish

Can you send a picture, look like the fish?
Or do you have a scientific name for the fish?
How are the water conditions (hardness, pH, temperature)?

A lot of things I do not know. Learning has no end

Male bright orange female dull yellow, water has been tested and its perfect. all other fish shrimp and crayfish are thriving and molting etc , these were fine also for the first day or 2 but lately seem very lethargic. Any advice would be great !! Thank you

Re: killifish

It is Aphyosemion australe hjerreseni.

For comparison, a picture of me


These fish are at the beginning a little shy. What do you feed them? There is live food needed. Now summer black mosquito larvae. In winter Cyclops (under the ice) and Tubifex. Drosophila, white worms. No artificial diet.

I Wish You Success!

Re: killifish

Yes it is right. The Killies it would prefer dark.
But the light is coming from the lightning. It takes 1/1000 second. It is not noticed by the fish. Because of the nerve.
