Re: Mysteriouse death
Jill how big were the rachovii? If they were around 2 inches, they were
considered adults and could have died of old age. If that doesn't seem to
solve your problem then what about pH and hardness? Aquarium water values
should be around 6.7 to 7.5 and hardness of around 60 to 120 ppm.
Nothobranchius sp. usually live a year maximum. Mine only live for a usual
life of around 8 months before they become deformed and eventually die. If
you want your killifish to live longer, pick species that are non-annuals
like Rivulus sp. and Fundolopanchax sp.
Good luck with your rachovii's. And next time you might ask the breeder
how old the fish are before buying them.
