I've kept and bred many different freshwater fish for a number of years but have never had Killiefish. I have ordered from eBay a batch of eggs of Nothobrachius Korthausae Mafia which should be ready to hatch in about a month's time. They are being supplied by a breeder in Malta who appears to be breeding over 20 different species. I understand that they are by killiefish standards relatively easy to keep? I've been researching but it seems the more research I do the more confusing it all becomes; there's lots of contradictory advice regarding water parameters and feeding in particular. Some are saying they need soft acidic water and others say they need hard alkali water. Some say that they will eat nothing but live food, other advice is that they will quite happily adjust to commercial flake food. I already have several grindal worm cultures underway as well as a brine shrimp hatchery should it be required. I am also about to start a microworm culture so hopefully between the three of them I should have things covered. I'm told that the fry are very susceptible to water changes and they should be left alone and just have the water topped up as and when necessary yet another site says that daily water changes are crucial for the fry to develop properly. I get the feeling that a lot of what is written is hearsay or second hand information which may not necessarily be accurate. Does anybody on this site have experience of this particular fish or something closely related and in particular raising them from eggs? I would rather take my advice from somebody who has experience rather than from an unknown internet source who may or may not know what they are talking about. I would like eventually to breed these fish (assuming I manage to rear them in the first place). This is not a commercial venture I would just like to keep the colony going since all of them that I manage to raise are destined to die within a year or so. Should they be spawned on peat or on spawning mops? Others suggest plastic containers with holes in the lid half full of peat. I don't mind using any of these methods, I would just like to have the best chance of spawning and rearing the next generation. I have a couple of small tanks ready to go - any advice would be gratefully received.
