Has anyone bought and raised eggs from eBay?

    Hi all...I'm looking for something new to grace my 180l tank and I love the look of killifish...I know they don't appear in my lfs very often, but I came across someone saying that buying the eggs and raising the fry would be a much cheaper option...
    So I'm wondering if anyone has any experience in doing this , and if it was successful how it was done? :D

    Hi,

    Although I haven't bought eggs from Ebay or Aquabid I have raised eggs from fellow breeders who shipped me the eggs. It is fairly easy to raise the eggs. You just need to have all the supplies like food on hand before the eggs arrive.

    Please go to aka.org. This site will really be helpful with exactly what steps you need to take to raise the killie eggs.

    Good luck!

    I was looking at that site earlier on my phone ....I'm actually going to switch on the pc so I can read it properly lol...
    I thought it might make for an interesting project...hopefully with a good outcome.
    I really really really like killifish so it will definitely be something I will look into...might even do a blog if I decide to do it?

    Definitely make a blog about your progress with Killies! I'd be very interested to see how it turns out. Course you'd need to take lots of pictures haha. You just need to sent a PM to Mike asking for a blog of your own if you do decide to make a blog.

    I have done this several times over the years.
    The biggest issue is having the correct sized food ready.
