Beautiful fish but very short lived. I think it is something like a year tops if I remember correctly. There was a great article on them in Tropical Fish Hobbyist magazine a couple months ago.

They're killifish from africa I believe. They are peaceful and can live for over a year in proper conditions.

Thats a nothos killifish


Im not sure about them or their full name other than that they have a short life cycle of about 1 year


I hear you can keep a few in a 10 gallon because of their docile behavior and small size

Anyone know how fast they breed then since their life cycle is so short?
