Can't help you with Australian customs info, but on the killifish it would help if you indicate which species you are considering. There are many, and they vary in size and needs. We don't have any in our profiles (yet).

ok ive done a bit more research n it turns out i have heard ppl getting killifish eggs into australia but its illegal apparently so im steering away from that idea, umm im not 100% sure yet guess it depends on tank size (i hear they dont need a big tank?) and easyness to keep, would you recommend any 'beginner' type killifish? i noticed no tabs of thisfish yet hehe but all in good time im sure.
