    This species isn't really hard at all. I have around 30 fry from them currently and lots of eggs.

    I just put a layer of peat moss in a 500ml plastic container with some java moss and IAL, then fill it up with water from the main parent tank. I put the eggs I have picked off the mop in, and add a drop or two of methylene blue to help prevent fungus. Running an airstone in there can also help with that.

    Then a couple weeks later I should see the fry starting to hatch (you can see their eyes through the eggs) and then their care is quite similar to that of any fish fry.

    yep, orange with kind of a lyre looking caudal. I've always liked the look of killis, but the sort of effort required to hatch them makes me nervous lol

    The orange one? It's just a male Aphyosemion australe gold. It's a species of killifish, quite common and very easy to care for.
