Kili Fish?

What are their requirements? I saw a good looking few at the LFS and I would like to get a pair. Any info?

Killifish are gorgeous! Not hard to keep at all. My suggestions from personal experience are:

1. No small fish like neons
2. No small-ish fish with longer fins - my killifish beat up my long-finned danios tails, but did not nip at their bodies.
3. They spend most of their time at the surface, so the surface should not be crowded with other surface dwellers.
4. Keep them fed well with a variety of foods like shrimp, krill, live foods, frozen foods.
5. They are jumpers so watch them when the top is open!

There are so many species, it is difficult to generalize. To me it is preferrable to keep them in species tanks. Some of them are the most colourful fish in the hobby, yet rarely seen in the hobby.

I would personally, set up like a 15 or 20long for a pair and breed them! they are very awesome but I agree, they will make your gorgeous neon a snack! (speaking from experience)
