Re: hard water killies?
When in Florida why not raise Jordenella floridae the
flag fish. This is a fish well suited to Floridian
water and temperatures. Some of the pupfish are truly
gorgeous and are acclimatged to hard water. Aphanius
mento the Turkish killish is as beautiful as the
prettiest of killies and is also a hard water
killifish. It is easy to breed if you give the female
plenty of places to hide and the food is scattered
around the tank so that she gets some food to remain
