Took some photos of this tanks inhabitants again.


Young male, biggest one. Finnage coming along nicely


And a female to accompany him.


Little one(most likely female) looking for some tidbits(Hikari First Bites)




Younger male.




And the Big Daddy(avatar fish). Right now being his usual uncooperative self. Such a ham Wink


About as much as he let me do. The only reason he was out was to get his share of food.


Anyone in for a duckweed pie?

Try selling the duckweed in the Aquabid food section. When we got our second or third outbreak of duckweed in my dad's "eel tank", the marbled headstanders loved to snack on 'em. Maybe you could also compress it into herbivore cubes. Let your imagination run wild.

Oh, also, the killifish look very happy in their tank. All of the bunches of plants must be very enjoyful.

NoName, where do you get your killifish from? I tried specially ordering them from my LPS but they "said they did"(been 2-3 weeks) and my mom is not that thrilled with aquabid saying "what if they won't arive alive?" I would love to know. Because I have been trying to find some and yours look OUTSTANDING Smile

Wow, that tank looks like a jungle. I'm sure they love swimming through all those plants. I love the little red dot patterns on the female, and the male is stunning. I must say, noname, you are an incredible killifish keeper.

Byez! Very Happy

Thanks all for the interest.

CCS: I kinda doubt people would buy it. Currently I either compost it(to the worms) or throw it to the goldfish. I'd like to get perhaps some Ameca splendens to eat this stuff though.

Susan: Get some photos of your killies up too.

Tim: I got these from someone who was downsizing his fishroom. Your best bet is to look around for the hobbyists who keep and breed killies. If you are in the AKA then the BNL has lots of killies for sale. I think you can see the Registry and Classifieds if you sign up for a special account(free) on the AKA website. You will almost certainly need to have fish shipped unless you are lucky enough to have a club in your area.

Sahara: I don't think I'm deserving of that, still much a newbie at this game. They would probably have produced at least double the number of offspring in the hands of someone more experienced. But for now this rate will have to do. They seem to have little paths they take through the plants...it will be a tough job catching them when that time comes!

I would, but the son borrowed the camera and won't have it back until this weekend. The blues are really coming out on the Cavauti, now I know what you meant by that. The clowns are starting to show the red between the black lines. Really getting beautiful.

Got a club meeting Sunday, so don't know what kind I will end up with if they have any there for the auction Embarassed

OK, noname here are a couple of shots of the 2 cavati males. Not very good pics. This is new camera and still learning it.

This one is in the molly tank.


In the 5 gal tank with the female
