The breeding of the killifish

Hi there, I know there are a lot of experienced aquarium keepers on this forum. I was curious to know if any have ever kept killifish? And if so, have you attempted to breed them with any success? I would like to try to breed the 4 I have. I just hope I have at least 1 male and 1 female... I can't tell!

Any ideas? Suggestions? I have read some interesting articles on other sites I think will help but I was hoping to find someone with some actual experiences raising these little guys.


38 Gallon (Freshwater): 1 Green Swordtail, 3 Yo-Yo Loaches, 1 Clown Pleco, 1 Blue Gourami, 4 Otocinclus, 7 Cherry Barbs.

46 Gallon (Saltwater): 60 pounds Lalo Live Rock, 60 pounds aragonite sand, 1 Coral Beauty Angelfish, 1 Peppermint Shrimp, 1 Mushroom Coral, 1 Emerald Crab, various snails and hermit crabs.

10 Gallon (Saltwater quarantine):

My Killi gave birth to 3 tiny fish so far.
i have 1 male 2 femal in the 5 gal. So far i fail to raise all 3. They grow really slow compare to my guppy. After 1 months it still around 4-5mm only before it die.

You need some floating plant for the fish to hide.
