    Hello, I was just wondering if anyone else keeps gulf killies? I have 7 in my 55 planted with about 20 tiger barbs. Around my area gulf kkillies are refered to as mud minnows and are mostly used as bait fish. I decided to catch a few in a brackish creek near my home and raise them in freshwater. From what I have read they can handle fresh water to nearly a marine type enviroment.

    Mine took to strait freshwater with no issues at all. They are raised comertially in freshwater ponds so no reason they would not do well in an aquarium. I couls not find alot of info on them using google except that everywhere i read said that they were hard to raise in an aquarium because thier normal food was small crustations and shrimps, but mine took well to ANYTHING I gave them.
    Actually they are raveous and very agressive. That is the reason I decided to try tiger barbs with them and over the last six months they have done well together.

    I will attach a few pictures.

    Well, the femails are more silver/gray, but hte males have a brighter tail and the light blue spots. Also, they seem to spawn about twice a month and when they do the males darken up to almost brown and the tails and blue spots really shine. Actually they are very atractive fish.
    Thanks for the complement on the tank also!

    Thanks for the info...that is really neat that you can catch your own fish!...what sort of algae are you having problems with?...what kind of lighting setup do you have?

    It is just reguar old green algea.
    As far as lighting I have Fluval Daylight Aqualife & Plant LED Aquarium Lamp 48"
    It is 46 watt so it is bright, but I have it on a timmer so it is only on for about 6 hours a day now.

    Hmm...not familiar with that there ambient light in the room too (windows, etc)...was that tank recently planted, some of them look like like they have more growing to do...maybe once that happens, they will help with the extra nutrients the algae is using to grow

    To be honest, I really don't see any algae problems in the pics, but of course seeing the tank in person is a whole other thing

    On a side note, I wish steeler1 were able to see those Gulf Killies of yours...I'd really like to hear what he has to say about you have males and females? big do they get?
