Reproduction

Substrate spawner: eggs laid in substrate (eg Peat) and need to be kept dry for some months before being reintroduced to water to hatch. First foods for fry: vinegar eels, baby brine shrimp, microworms.

 

Feeding

Carnivorous. Prefers live foods, but also usually accepts frozen foods and dry foods.

 

Additional Comments

Prefers a planted tank and looks best against a darker substrate. Use a tight fitting cover as all Killifish are expert jumpers. Keep either in a single species tank or with similar sized peaceful species. Males are more colourful and have longer fins. Blue Gularis grow much larger than most Killifish.
