So since the holiday catalogs are being shipped out a few days ago I happened to notice my young cousin looking at a product in the magazine known as fish in a jiff. as an avid hobbyist my interest was peeked and I took a minute to review the product. the items description stated that the fish in the kit are killifish (of which I have only general knowledge) and that you could hatch fish in minutes. I know that killifish lay their eggs in annual pools and that seasonal rainfall triggers their hatching. However this only my real information on this group of fish. I pondered order the kit for a short bit but I realized that as a aquarist who is constantly tinkering with his tanks I would never be satisfied with a $40 mail order kit. I figure that with a little guidance from this forum I could produce a much more stimulating experience raising killifish. So I come to you for basic information on
- killifish care
- hatching killifish
- reputable sources for eggs
- plants suitable for killifish aquariums
