I've never kept Killifish but have always had an interest. My current favourite would be Aphyosemion sp. oyo, though I don't think I've ever seen it on any lists.. I don't even know if it's imported. If I did see it... I'd be looking at setting up my 2 foot tank :/ That's not a good thing!

Anyone have any experiences with those?

I don't have any experience with that fish in particular. But if you fancy having a go at hatching some Nothobranchius eggs as an introduction to killi's PM me. I'll send you a few eggs gratis.

Just bear in mind, they're not really community fish and really need feeding on live / frozen food. Oh, and they don't live very long being annuals. They'll lay plenty of eggs if well fed and cared for. You collect these and then incubate them in peat for 3 - 5 months or so and then restart the cycle....

I had some Simpsonichthys flammeus last year but unfortunately the females came in very weak and keeled over quite quickly. Very beautiful but I found them to exhibit a very high level of intraspecific aggression between males and had to split them into separate tanks in the end...

I currently have Aphyosemion Australe Gold,Aphyosemion, Australe Park Mondah (1 female,lost the male & they are not easy to get.),Aphyosemion Striatum & Fudulopanchax Nigerianus"Makurdi"(2 young fish & some more eggs that I bought last week).
I have also bred Fundulopanchax Scheeli which breed like rabbits & they don't appear to eat their fry.I had loads of them.
