They would be on a diet of mostly flake food, dried bloodworms, and live brine shrimp.... I'm just not sure if my tank meets their needs, and if it does, what kind of killifish? It has a low power filter (I could get a better one if need be tho), and a small heater... I know some killifish don't need heaters, and some do.... so I could always take out the heater

i dont think a 4 gallon tank is big enough for a pair of killies.................do your research on the species you would like to get..........some species of killies are known to be aggressive to smaller fish

I was thinking Rivulus xiphidius, most websites say 2.5g or larger for them..
