Length: 5 cm
Type of killies: annual

Incubation time:
3-5 month in peat
Size of the fry:
First food to the fry:
infusorians and newly hatched artemia
Temperature in the aquarium: 22-24 C
How we keep them:
We prefer to keep them in groups with 3-4 males and 6-8 females. The aquarium size
is 40 liters and there is a lots of floating hornwort (Ceratophyllum demersum), some snails and a 1-2 cm thick layer of peat on the bottom. The water is hard, 12-14 gH, 500 micro Siemens and 8,2-8,4 in pH. I collect the peat every week when I change the water and I incubate the eggs for 5 month before it’s time to hatch them. The fry grows fast and we can see the difference between males and females when they are 19 days old.
