    Default Lampeye Killies

    I've seen these attractive fish and was wondering if anybody has kept them? I know there are several spieces to pick from ranging from very small to at least empeoror tetra size.

    Just general questions like compatability, water conditions,size, ect.

    I have kept Normans lampeye killi. The are awesome fish. I do not have them anymore because the are top dwellers and jumpers. I do not have a lid on my tank and 3 of them jump out while I was at work.

    Lid or hoods are a MUST!!!

    If I ever get them again i will defintely get a lid.

    I have a 3 norman's lampeyes ive kept with a school of threadfin rainbows, in a heavily planted tank. Nothing too special on the water, i just keep it clean, and at about 74 degrees. They are great little fish, i wish i could find some more of them at the fish stores around me, ive heard they are easy to breed.

    Aren't you looking for a head coaching job?

    Kidding aside thanks for the response.
