For years I was looking for these big killifish and now I get them in my tanks.These are young fish of about 2.5 inches(6/8 cm) at 6 weeks.Big eaters they take what you give them.I don't want to use live fish because when you start it is impossible to get them to dry or frozen food in my experience.Pics are of poor quality but will let you have an idea of that rarity.

Love these big brutish Cynos, almost alien in appearance, incredible that an annual fish can grow to several inches in no time at all.

They are prolific I collect more than 100 eggs per week.But after a while almost 50% of them diseapeared ,so I will keep a few bags and sell the other one or trade them.
