killifish fry

Post  jikin junkie on Wed Aug 21, 2013 6:46 am

I had just purchase my first pair of killifish. I moved my last rosy barbs outside to make room for the killis in a 20 long with lots of plants. I saw a fry yesterday already however, is it rosy barb fry or killifish fry? I don't think they have been in the tank longer than a week? Does anyone know how long the hatch rate is for gardneri in room temp tank water?

One source I found Mark says 16-18 days. Seems a bit long, but thats what it said. Also said the fry are free swimming immediately. Maybe thats why they take so long.

Beautiful fish.

Okay so now I have a lot of killifish now. A lot easier than I thought, just add water.  Razz  Males and females growing out, should have some to take to auction in January if I don't sell them off on aquabid first. I don't understand why these fish are not popular? You never see them in the pet stores.
