Scientific name: Aplocheilus Lineatus
Difficulty Level: Easy
Also known as golden wonder killifish, these fish grow bigger than many other killifish growing to almost two and a half inches. These are peaceful, easy going fish that make a great addition to any aquarium. They do shine with yellow coloration with a white underbelly. These like other killifish are jumpers, so make sure that there is a lid so they do not jump out.
These carnivorous little yellow bolts enjoy a diet of anything you have on hand. They will devour flake food, live or frozen meals. We rotate their diet between flake food, live brine and black worms. Surface floating shelter is very important, but can become toxic if the tank is overfed. These rays of sunshine at the top of your tank will do well under planted cover.
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 killis, 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 flake foods, live worms. We use inert substrate (sand) of various colors. We use sponge filters in all our tanks. We also supply our them with many hiding places in varying tall plants plants, live and artificial. They prefer a heavily planted tank to spawn their eggs on. They are simple breeders, spawning on java moss or a spawning mop, the eggs will hatch in 10-14 days at a higher tank temperature (roughly 82 degrees) It is suggested with small fry to remove them and keep them in a smaller tank with a sponge filter. Live brine several times a day will ensure a higher survival rate under the right conditions.
