Golden Wonder Killifish Spawning
I recently bought two young golden wonder killies, Aplocheilus lineatus
. Due to washed-out colors at the store the fish could not be sexed. However, I apparently lucked out and got a pair as the male has colored up nicely. The fish are pretty small, about 2.5" but today have been showing spawning behavior. Is this usual for fish this small? The fish are in a community tank and as I'm not trying to breed them (yet) it's no problem if my other fish eat the eggs or fry. I was hoping for a male/female pair as I've read that males can be aggressive. I'm prepared to separate the fish if I need to, but now it looks like I won't need to. Will it be ok if I leave the two together in the community tank?
