My Best Fish Friend™

So a few minutes ago I saw a commercial for this on TV. You get a 'miracle pouch' tea bag like thing with Killifish (Nothobranchius Korthausae) eggs in it and you raise them. From what I heard they are hard to raise. I honestly would just like to buy it to see if it works lol.

It's just a newer version of this from when I was kid, a waste of money IMO.

If you want killifish eggs, there are plenty of reputable sellers on Aquabid that will send them to you. Don't buy this garbage.

I just thought it would be fun to try it out and see if it would work.

Yes they were brine shrimp with a cool name but it's the same concept, place eggs in water and watch them grow...they were the Chia Pet for aquarist.

I always wanted to grow those when I was little. I thought they would be so cool. I feel bad for those poor Killi's because people will be shoving 8 of them in a 1g fish bowl
