The Gardneri Killi named not because it is a killer but the name Killy derived from the Dutch word meaning ditch or channel. Naturally found in water holes and streams in Africa they do very well in community tanks. Their beautiful colorations will add pop and flair to your planted tank. They will be easy to breed on spawning mops or hovering roots from your amazon plants. The eggs will naturally hatch in about a months time. Keep the fry fed with live brine. These will be sold in pairs. During our pre sale we sold lots of them we have 3 pairs left.
Origin: West Africa
Temp 73-782 F
KH 5 - 8
These little killifish need small food so their mouths can actually eat it. They do prefer meaty foods such as cyclops and baby brine shrimp. They will also love mini mealworms and mosquito larvae. They may also eat crushed flake food but they do prefer more meaty foods.
Live Arrival Guarantee:
We guarantee our fish will arrive alive to you. If one should not the cost of the fish will be refunded to you. Please send us a picture of the unopened bag within two hours of scheduled delivery. We can not guarantee live arrival if a mishap with the shipper occurs. We can not refund shipping, we can refund or replace the loss after pictures are sent and approved.
Once you receive your killies, please take a picture of them in their bag to send to us. We would like to hear from you after you receive them. After you open the bag, acclimate them slowly in a container adding small amount of your tank water to the container every few minutes for two hours. You can do this with an air line hose and valve or just by adding small amounts at a time. Slow and steady changes will be better for them. Once you are confident they have settled in, move them into their new tank. They will lose some color during transport, so be patient and they will color up in their new home. Your home!
We feed them twice a day alternating between live and frozen brine, crushed flake and micro worms. We use inert substrate (sand) of various colors. We use sponge filters in all our tanks. We also supply our killies with large open spaces to play in the tank, they have varying live plants, small rocks and taller tanks giving them more room to play.
