Re: [Killietalk] New to killies!
One thing that might be interesting is to have an idea what killies interest
you. 27 litres would be what I'd suggest for most small killies, but not
all. I have a 1.2 metre, 150 litre tank for a small group of Aphyosemion
punctatum, because I want to be able to watch their behavior in a more
natural set-up. The group is growing as they reproduce in the tank, and the
behavior is interesting, so the tank suits my purposes.
I have kept the same fish succesfully in 13 litre to 37 litre tanks. It
really depends on which fish you want to try. Killies can be kept in small
tanks, but it is not necessary.
