They do best in 2 F to 1 M, but out of a batch of 8 you could end up with all males, all females, or a really big unbalance that could end in nothing but fish drama!
Also, they recommend not putting them into an aquarium until they reach two inches...I would do it at 3/4 - 1 inch.
Also, they want you to continue buying their "special food", which is live brine shrimp...ehh, a waste of money.
It is a rather interesting set up, and if it was with a more docile killifish, I would consider trying it out and see, but not with that species.
Thanks for looking into it! That really stinks. I knew these guys were up to know good.
Something should be done about this. I am going to look for contact info with the company. If I find something I'll post it here (if that is Ok with the forum), or I'll PM anyone who asks. We can't have people selling fish that will kill each other!
