Aquarium kid, why all the new threads? Just ask all your questions together, youve asked about guppies and gouramis and killis. To answer your question, most killifish like soft acidic water, what's your pH?American League Champions! TIGERS!

My ph is at least 8.4 but is hard to be sure because that is the end of my test kits scale.

Most fish can adapt to a different pH if they are introduced slowly to it - the pH of the tank in the fish store could be very different than what comes out of your tap, but if your water is slowly added to what the fish comes in (called acclimation), the fish shouldn't get stressed.
What are you using to test your pH - a liquid kit or strips?46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, green corys, 1 guppy, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
5 gal QT with green corys & 2 guppies

If so, Each bottle has a number printed on it. The final four digits are the month and year of manufacture respectively. 1010 = October of 20010, Etc.
Ammonia, Nitrate, GH, High Range pH,
Phosphate, Copper, Calcium all last for 3 years.
Nitrite and KH will last for 5 years.
Freshwater pH(low range) will last for five years.
Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
