Re: [Killietalk] Re: Looking to start a killifish tank
And as with most living things, the more room you can give them, the better.
If they will make do in a 2.5 gallon tank, they will usually do even better
in a 10 (really about 8.6 gal) or a 20. (There are exceptions of course.)
Our eyes (mine too) just get too big for our fish rooms at auctions. ;)
Met a guy at the Milwaukee Aquarium Society last Friday who had been
cruising the Net for info on killies and he noticed that some person named
Jim Gasior was going to present a program introducing killies (which was
elegant in it's organization, timing and clarity by the way). This
gentleman - having some experience with aquaria - showed up, ready to take
notes and get started with killies. (The only killies in the club auction
was a bag of Tom Wotjech's Aplocheilicthys - now something elsei - myersi!)
Introductions were made. Boy did his eyes get a little bigger when the WAKO
show for the following weekend was described. :)
Then it turns out that his home is minutes from Gary Greenwood's Pets 'n
Things. (He beat me to Gary's place Saturday morning by the way.)
He mentioned that he had already bought and was preparing a tank for
killies. He was also seasoning a sponge filter in another aquarium! How many
of us do all that 9 -10 days in advance?
I asked him how big the tank was. He replied, "A 29 gallon tank."
About the only thing I could respond was, "God bless you."
All the best,
Park Forest, IL

are willing to do what it takes they are all equally easy.
