    Are those live bloodworms? If so, where did you get them?

    @KongregateBadgeQuest At that point, I believe I had around 15 bluefin killis, the two golden wonders, the baby convict, and a clown zebra plecostomous. Perhaps it was a bit overstocked, but the killis loved the large school, and the water stayed clean enough.

    @HoppyfishPerse001 I gave the convict away to a friend before he got all too big.

    @Folma7 That is quite interesting. I have wondered this myself.

    What all did you have in there? I want to get some killifish for my 10gal but dunno how many I could have.

    @mattsoccer20 - It is a 10 gallon. @maxima423 - All of my bluefin killifish unexpectedly died at about a year. I was never able to determine why. I did not think that they were an annual species. Curious as to their lifespan as well.

    Very clean tank, nice. I read somewhere that this species prefer cooler water temps 76-79 deg F, which is somewhat confusing. Why do fish, native to the S.E. USA, where in the summer water temps routinely average high eighties to low nineties prefer temps 20 degrees cooler? Go figure(!)

  • Stephen Molnar

    yeah, I would stay away from them because of your small tetras. there are plenty of other species of killifish with smaller mouths, though.

  • Stephen Molnar
    Stephen Molnar 12 years ago

    the bluefin killis have very small mouths. the golden wonder killies do have large mouths, and they would definitely go after anything small enough to fit in their mouth. so I would suggest full grown neons and glow lights with smaller golden wonders. should be fine in the long run.

  • wolverine1865

    what do they eat?

  • Stephen Molnar
    Stephen Molnar 12 years ago

    sometimes aquabid has them, but check the feeder guppy tank at your local fish store.

  • Stephen Molnar
    Stephen Molnar 12 years ago

    that's why he was only in there when he was tiny.

  • Stephen Molnar

  • Stephen Molnar

    I don't believe so.

  • Stephen Molnar
    Stephen Molnar 12 years ago

    yes, you should keep them in schools. and they would work fine with neons.

  • Stephen Molnar
    Stephen Molnar 13 years ago

    yes, but the fish this video focuses on are the bluefin killis (small striped ones).

  • Stephen Molnar
    Stephen Molnar 13 years ago

    not really. I just replace the die off with more annuals from the feeders. at about the same time that the year-olds die, more freshly hatched ones come in the feeders of the lfs. beautiful cycle.

  • Mark Stewart

    thts so sad :( do you get non annual killifish ?

  • Stephen Molnar
    Stephen Molnar 13 years ago

    and thanks, I like them a lot. they make me sad though, because killifish are annual fish, and a decent amount die off in a year.

  • Stephen Molnar
    Stephen Molnar 13 years ago

    they will readily accept flake food, but they love frozen meaty foods like blood worms, brine shrimp, etc. live black worms are a real treat, too.

  • Mark Stewart
    Mark Stewart 13 years ago

    ok thts :) do they require a special diet ? will ordenry fish food be ok btw they fish a beautiful

  • Stephen Molnar
    Stephen Molnar 13 years ago

    yes, you can mix sexes freely. and I got them from the feeder guppy tank of my local fish store.

  • Mark Stewart

    keep them in a planted tank, and look for them mixed in with feeder guppies. they are pretty easy. they like meaty foods.

    hey cool video do you have any tips on killifish for a noob

  • Rachel Arnold
    Rachel Arnold 13 years ago

    Cool, if you get footage of his entire body I'd probably be able to further identify him/her for you.

  • Stephen Molnar

    how many bettas were in the tank? were they all males? you should figure out what killed them before choosing different fish. and that really depends on the killifish. I currently have about 6 or 7 bluefin killis in my ten. you could get the same look with white cloud minnows. about 5-10 would be fine. just keep up on your water changes.
