[Killietalk] RE: Killietalk Digest, Vol 10, Issue 52
Hi Maran. I'm a newbie also and I chose Aphyosemion Bitaeniatum, Majitam as
my first killie. I think that they are excellent beginner killies. I
obtained my fish from David Mikkelson at www.thekillifishsource.com, and
they spawned for me within three weeks of receiving them. Everyone on this
list was very helpful with my questions about raising the fry, and I now
have about 18 five week old fry. They were also not as aggressive as I
expected, so that was a nice surprise. My two males co-exist quite
peacefully together in a ten gallon tank with some threadfin rainbows. I
can't advise on their compatibility with exigoideum, but I think you will be
very happy if you decide to go with bits as your first fish.

To: killifish discussion list <killietalk at aka_org>
While trying to decide which killies I want to start
with, I've run across a very pretty fish that I've
seen identified in different places as:
Aphyosemion biteaniatum, Ijebu Ode and as
Chromaphyosemion biteaniatum,Ijebu Ode
Which is correct? One site said that a
Chromaphyosemion species could be kept with an
Aphyosemion species, but I want to make sure that if I
have two killie species in one thank that they can't
interbreed. (I'm also looking at Aphyosemion
exigoideum, Ngoudoufala. Can these share a tank with
Are either of these bad choices for beginners?
