Fundulopanchax gardneri – your best entry into killi breeding
This wonderful medium sized killifish has been in my aquariums for decades, and it still fascinates and amazes me. It has a personality of its own, always curious, hungry and active. And it is never shy, but comes to the front of the tanks, whenever I enter the fish room.
In the aquarium trade you might bump into this fish under names as Steel-blue Killifish, Blue lyretail and Gardner’s killi. If you do, bring it home :0)
These large blue beauties are hardy and just plain easy to keep, and perhaps one of the easiest killifish to keep and breed, since it isn’t fuzzy about temperature and water chemistry. And the fry are large enough to take newly hatched brine shrimp and micro worms as their first meal, even though infusoria is a great first food as well.
This species is a non-annual plant spawner and can live for 3 to 4 years. As most other killifish F. Gardneri can live in very small tanks, but they deserve a well planted tank in my opinion.
Hope to have aroused your interest in this wonderful fish.
