This species of Killifish is an ideal choice for beginner aquarists because of its easy breeding process. Its eggs do not need to be removed from the water after spawning, and it prefers to lay its eggs within a spawning mop or java moss. In addition, the eggs will hatch in about a month’s time, and the newborn fish can be fed live baby brine shrimp. Furthermore, the holding tank should be covered because these fish may attempt to jump. With the proper care, this species of Killifish can easily be bred and make an excellent addition to any aquarium.
Gardneri Killifish are one of the most active fish in the aquarium and will enjoy a variety of food options.
