    Makes you wonder why anyone would desire to dye/tattoo a fish when nature already provides the best colours!

    The body shape really reminds me of Aphanius. Think I´d like to this genus at some point. Were they difficult Mick?

    Now that is a stunning fish, my favourite killi is still A. bivitatum though.

    wow… the color is so intense! I havent had any experience in keeping killifish yet, and as always, photos always tempt me!!

    not really difficult Matt, they are prone to gatting velvet disease though, the breeding is a bit hit and miss though, easy to spawn but the eggs are a b*gg*r to hatch sometimes.

    What makes them difficult to hatch mate? I take it they need a dry period?

    sometimes Matt they started out as good eggs but while in the drying they either went bad or just dissapeared leaving just peat in the end, other times i got really good hatches????.

    that is one hell of a fish.
    ditto mick, i had same problems. not sure if it was to do with the genetics of the parents, bad luck or poor quality peat etc. but i did maintain the guntheri for 3 years, raising fry and breeding them.
