I bought two pairs of these killies for a 40 gallon planted community tank. within two weeks the females killed off each other..I'm assuming anyways...they fought something fearce all the time til they were both dead. The males didn't fight all that much...just defended their side of the tank. Now my question is this: I'm down to one male...the other sadly jumped out of the tank. ...with the one remaining male....can I get more? The remaining one is huge now....much bigger than the ones in the stores.
second question: Are they meant to be in groups, pairs, or a male with several females etc? anyone know?

I have heard of people successfully keeping them in pairs and trios (harem style). Never put more than one male in a tank.

yea, I understand that....I had trouble with the females though not the males. ya think if I got a couple females again, that they would fight to the death again like the previous ones? I guess I could wait til I move the fish into the 75 gallon and then get some more killifish...then they would have more space.

thanks for the insights.
anyone else have any experiences like mine?

thanks for your reply. OK, so it sounds like I should just get my male a new female and leave it at that. thanks .

OP you could try getting a female and keeping her say in a five or ten gal until she gets larger .Then introduce her to your male .

Had a female male and a smaller male GW killi in a ten at first .The larger pair beat on the smaller male relentlessly ! Funny they would let him out in the morning to feed .Then both pulverize him until he hid again LOL ..He hid under a shell with just his snout poking out .

Have sense put my male and female in a 25 with some other fish mainly rainbows .They don't bother anybody but themselves LOL ..They seem to be mating .

My lone male loves it hes not getting beaten up ..He gets along fine with my three sword tails two flag fish and loaches .
