So, the random two golden wonder killifish I picked up at the LFS a while back are in fact a pair. Tonight, while I was looking at my tank really closely, I saw not only about four eggs attached to some floating Hornwort
and water lettuce roots, but also a fry hiding in there as well!
I'm not going to do anything special to raise the fry as I'm not really looking to breed the fish, but I just thought I'd share.
Here are the specs:
29g community tank with the two killies, three swordtails, one female Kribensis
, and 5 newly added kuhli loaches.
The tank has extensive rockwork along the back half with the aforementioned floating plants. The rocks are covered in Java Moss
, but the fish chose to use the floating plants instead.
The fish are fed a diet of flake, tropical crumbles, frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp, live blackworms and live Guppy
fry. They also get random bugs I find around the house.
The tank is kept at 78 degrees. Zero ammonia and nitrite, nitrates peak at about 20 ppm before water changes.
