    Nice fish man. I have Nothobranchius guentheri which I need to get into their own setup soon!

    Thanks man! Look at the other thread as well. I have LOTS of space for tanks :bigsmile: Let me know when you have offspring. I'm in CPT every so often...

    I will let you know if I'm able to breed them. I was sold 2xmale and 3xfemale. I lost one of the males within about 2 days and I think I'm down to a single female (hard to see as they are in my community 300l and the females look a lot like female guppies). I need to get them into their own tank but that requires me to do a bit of a tank/fish shuffle!

    I saw your other thread and I'm very jealous of all the Killis you guys up north have been able to get recently!

    Hi all

    It's been about a month since the last update and a FEW tanks later... :cool:

    Have a look at this - Australe Orange male a month ago and now..

    Amazing little fish. Still very small but spawing every day. They are extremely active in their breeding tank and will look great in a community setup. Colleted +- 15 eggs so far.


    Eagerly awaiting my Blue Gularis eggs from Canada!!!!

    @francoisve - Haven't managed to get them into their own setup yet. I will let you guys know once I have a setup for them and if I can get them to breed...

    Wow! He's really looking great!

    Does annual mean they only live for a year?

    Any luck with a new female for the other Killi yet?

    A year, more than a year or even a few months is some species. Normally a rainy season. No luck yet, my own females will be killed inside of 5 minutes if I put them with the male now, he's massive (and has had no "nookie" for a few weeks now). Will have to wait until the females grow out.

    Thanks man. I am very much aware that I'm running out of time, if I haven't left it too late already. Just have a lot of other stuff going on at the moment so battling to look after all my fish stuff.
