Mine never bothered with either the kuhli loaches or the peppered cories (although the cories were certainly too large for them to eat). I guess they're not much interested in eating bottom-dwellers (the upturned mouth verifies that). They did enjoy stalking/eating mid and top level swimmers though.

I also think its a matter in which sequence you add them to the tank. Take the A. Australe tank for example: I had the adult cories added way before I then added juvenile A. Australe so from the start the Cory where several times the size of them and as the Killi grew bigger themselves they never bothered.
You know kinda like a big dog that grows up as a pup with lil dogs and then won't ever bother them afterward as adult?

I am new to the forum I just wanted to register to tell you that you should go to aka.org and ask in their forums killifish are their thing. I know Nothos are annual so you should plan on breeding them as they are short lived. Trading eggs and fish among killifish enthusiasts is a big thing. I just traded some Fp. Gardneri Misaje eggs for Fp. Gardneri Clauseni Akure pairs. I recommend reading as many articles as you can about your fish. Not all killifish need softened water If I am thinking right that strain needs a bit harder water like what you already have. I have never kept that one as you usually buy eggs and most eggs of that particular killifish come from around the other side of the world as that is where they are popular. Your best bet is to go to aka.org and ask them through the forums.
