Here are a couple of shots of some of my killie males. Each group are in their own 10 gal tanks.

Beautiful fish and good photos, a bit blurry but it doesn't look like it was your fault. Are you sure you have them correctly labeled though? #1 I think is oeseri, and three bitaeniatum.

No your right about not labled right. Too tired to be doing this. #1 is the oeseri, but #3 is bitzagnando.

Thanks for the complements.

They get a variety of foods, some flake, but also frozen baby brine, bloodworms. Live they get daphena, brine shrimp, some white worms.

Nice second set of shots! Very Happy I like the last photo, especially.
Susan, could you provide the full, genus and species, names for these fish? There are too many killies out there, and I can't find bitzagnando.
Don't know where to start. It would be great if you could say what kind of killie they are, like SA annual, or whatever.
Thanks!
Very Happy

I have been trying to find out more on them, been waiting on info from the breeder. They aren't fully colored yet. When they do get there full colors they are totally awesome.

OK, here is some links on the killies that I have pictured, I am still reading up on them myself.

The Bit is Aphyosemion bitaneatum with a collection location of Zagnando Africa. See http://www.killifish.f9.CO2.uk/Killifish/Killifish%20Website/Ref_Library/Aphyosemion/A.bitaeniatum.htm
The oseri are Fundulopanchax oseri
See http://www.killifish.f9.CO2.uk/Killifish/Killifish%20Website/Ref_Library/Fundulopanchax/Fp.oeseri.htm
The loennbergii are another Aphyosemion.
See http://www.killifish.f9.CO2.uk/Killifish/Killifish%20Website/Ref_Library/Aphyosemion/A.loennbergi.htm

So that's how they got that name. I know killi fanciers are very big on keeping populations of the same species by location separate. This must be some kind of shorthand killi talk.

Do you know if there are any new world or native species that can live nicely in a 2.5 G well-planted and well-furnished tank?
Very Happy
