Notho. Breeding
I got a male Notho. Kaefuensis (probably spelled wrong). I contacted the breeder and I'm going to get a full tour!!:dance:. Right now, hes in my 2.5 planted. I have a double 10gal stand setup, one for the fry grow out and the other for a different notho. or a pair of Aphyosemion. I'm going to stick with the peat spawners. Ive heard that a pair is better than a trio for a multitude of reasons, such as aggression, breeding, etc. I dosed 1 teaspoon per gallon of marine salt. Should I take out the silica sand? Its annoying not having anything on the bottom. I'll post some pictures of the setup, once my camera is functioning.

Here's the setup. Two sponge filters will come on Tuesday:). Also, ill need to sink the dw, its adding a dark tint that will help subdue the lighting.

Keep updating and are those annual or non annual killi?

Sorry about the period of inactivity, school started and ive been busy. Well, I spent my money for the other killi, so now I have to save up to have the pair. Worth it for a Paratilapia polleni though. Here's the tank now, got the two sponge filters in. The dw started to rot, so heres the new setup.

They are annual peat spawning killifish.

How much are they when you buy it? Here we only have golden wonder killi

I bought the male for $15 U.S. dollars. I called the breeder and he offered me a pair for $15. So much for my lfs ripping me off

Okay, sorry for the delay in posts. I got a breeding pair of the nothobranchius rachovii. The male was hiding during the picture. I cant obtain a female notho. kaefuensis at this point in time. The hardest thing now, is finding peat in the fall. Hopefully can get the peat in there soon and see some eggs!
