It must be hell photographing those fellas Wink .
Man o man I like the killis but am sad to keep them since they do not live long (am I right?).
I wonder is your tank water very acidic pH 6.0 or something? Or will they breed in higher pH?

I love the photos!

Congrats!

Dusko.

Thanks all! Believe me though that this isn't all the color they have on them. But they are a little smaller Laughing

Dusko: My water is pH 7.5 and they are fine/laying viable eggs. Some killies live short lives but most can easily make it over the one year mark(Nothobranchius furzeri is one I know of that is usually dead and gone by months at the best). These ones here are said to be able to live several years. One Rivulus kept in a fishbowl in a lab reach the age of 13...which is the oldest documented killifish for now.
