    I know nothing about killis so I'll just bump this thread for you.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    they seem to be fairly rare, but I bought them on ebay, just because my daughter felt the "pink fish" is a extremely beautiful

    There's not much info out there on this fish, but I have found that they are an annual killi, so in order to keep them for more than a year, you will certainly want them to breed.

    If anyone on this forum knows about killis it's Red. He's been stopping by now and then lately, you might want to pm him your questions.

    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    I have never kept Simpsonichthys zonatus, but I have kept a similar species. These are peat spawners, so you add this to the aquarium and can pick out the eggs out of the peat. Using your thumbs, shift through the peat and pick out the eggs. When I had a similar species, I had a killie mop and peat in the aquarium, and they used both. These could live up to 3 or 4 years, but average is more around 2 years. I would keep a heavy ratio of female to males, and keep a close eye on who is getting picked on. Theys hould get max 1.5", but depending on the species it could vary.

    I really enjoyed the video, thank you for posting it!

    Here is an old thread that I created.
