[Killietalk] Blue Gularis
Hello again - I guess I was so worried about my fish I didnt give any real
information! He is a Blue Gularis - He was about 6" long with his tail fin.
I had him in my 75gal. tank with a mix of fish. All community fish. Pair
of dwarf goraumis(sp) neons,cardinals,zebras,red serpaes, spotted
cats,swordtails,mickeymouse platties, and my husband just got a couple of
cherry barbs and some black striped something - but he said he asked at the
fish store and they told him they were non-aggresive. We do a water change
1x a month and test frequently. tests have always been good.
We have had the tank for over a year and the Blue killie for over a month
and he has been fine. All the other fish are fine. We have pulled the
killie out and seperated him. I will go to fish store tomorrow for
medicine. Do you think he will be ok? Will his tail grow back?
>From what you say sounds like some of my community fish could be nippers -
but I have sat and watched and never seen any of the smaller fish come near
him. He has actually eaten a few of my neons. Well I didnt see him do it -
but some disappeared after he moved in.
I have another tank with guppies, orange glo zebras and rummynoses in it -
would he be better in that tank? He would probably eat the guppies........
I dont really have room for another tank :-(

welcome to the AKA Patti. There are tons of killifish that are blue.
Taking a guess by the popularity of, names used and easiness of locating;
I'm guessing you probably have a form of Fundulopanchax Gardneri but you
might look at some photos to identify exactly what you have. Other killies
I can think of that are commonly labeled with "blue" in the name would be
the Blue Gularis and the Blue Panchax although the panchax has very little
blue on the body. What size tank do you have him in and what other fish are
in there. you cannot place them with fin nippers such as aggressive barbs,
tetras or danio's. They will rip the fins off a male killifish much like a
male guppy. Other problems could be from water conditions or disease. good
luck, Kyle in Oklahoma
