    Just wondering if you have any tips on keeping banded killifish. they are native to pennsylvania, but i am thinking that killifish are the same the world over, so any tips would be appreciated.

    What exactly do you want advice on? General advice is to put them in a tank which is big enough for them, make sure it has a hood as they are jumpers, give them some plants to hide among. Keep more males than females.

    Well I took 10 banded killifish out of my local lake during the summer and they are now living happily with leapard danios a red tailed shark and weather loach.
    Just treat them like you would any other fish but I find they do better with cooler temperatures anything around 20-24*C. Also when I first got them they had no idea what flake food was so I fed them blood worms which they grudgingly accepted. Once they got used to that I moved them onto flake food which they now love.
    29 gallon: 10 Banded Killifish, 5 Leopard Danios, 1 Red Tailed Shark, 1 Weather Loach, 10 Ghost Shrimp
    10 gallon: Empty
    5.5 gallon: Empty
