The seller has only 100% positive feedback and they said that the eggs are in the 'dry season' of their life right now, which means that the eggs will be fine to shipother wise they would hatch and they would all die. If you know anything about killifish, the annual ones lay the eggs in the substrate in the end of the wet season and then the pond dries up and kills the parents but when the rain comes again a few months later the eggs get wet and start to hatch. If you couldn't tell, I have done my reaearch on these fish to ensure they will be brought up in the best habitat I am able to provide for them.capekate said:It now all depends on their shipping method. Will these eggs survive the trip? Have you checked out the sellers feedback? That can let you know if they have happy satisfied buyers/customers. I found that ebay has ALOT of aquarium supplies and yes, books are well worth shopping for there, as they can be pretty expensive in the stores.
Its another great place to find aquarium decorations.. rocks...wood...the list goes on forever!
Good luck! ~ kate
hard call, they're all great.. but i'd go with the 3rd one myself.Tom said:I know. When they get big enough I would put them in the 10 gallon with the amano shrimp if they won't get eaten and then from there, they will either go to the pet store or ebay. Which one of the 3 that I posted, do you think I should try and bid on next? He would combine the shipping if I order more.
I might get a used 10 gallon for the job of holding the fry after they hatch, unless one of you know if amano shrimp will eat them or not.Radcliffe said:
Good luck with a natural repellent! lol.. Hope your killifish dont get too fat haha...Tom said:I guess I will have to buy another empty tank then when I go and pick up my new canopy some time this week. ;D ;D
I just read an article on wikipedea that stated that the killifish will eat the larvae of mosquitoes and where there is a lack of killfish, there is an outbreak of malaria. So I could put the fish out side with an uncovered tank and let the mosquitoes lay eggs and then get eaten by the fish and we won't really see any mosquitoes again this year. (As long as we don't have another outbreak of wasps like last year)
