The Killifish species mentioned prefers not to spawn annually. Their eggs do not need to be removed from the water after spawning. They will typically lay their eggs within a spawning mop or java moss on the bottom of the aquarium. Incubation time depends on many factors and is unpredictable. The eggs will typically hatch within the first 5 months. Once hatched, place the fry in a small holding tank and feed the newborn fish live baby brine shrimp.
