Too much personal abuse, not enough information on Killies.
As a member of the B.K.A. I found your page and thought what a great idea,
hoping to exchange knowledge about the hobby with A.K.A. members, so far I
have been disappointed.
I hope this little article may get things off on the right footing.
At present I am the treasurer of the Fife group ( the only group in
we as a group promote the keeping and breeding of Killies, to ensure that
members and of course the fish benefit from our collective experience.
Each A.G.M. we each decide on a species to maintain throughout the year
and show the results to the group as they progress, I live in a small
village where no industry is near, I keep all my Killies ( mostly
in 100% rain water, the P.H. is about 6.2 and the general hardness about
All my fish seem to thrive in these conditions and breed well, I maintain
30 different species, there is a small pond on the local estate where I
fish for wild
brown trout, here I collect most of my live food, Daphnia, Bosmina,
Bloodworm and Glassworm, also I use the water from this pond ( 4.2 P.H. 5
general hardness ) to supplement my rain water, when added to my tanks, the
seem to liven up and show their colours better.
This usually results in a heavy egg production, at the time of writing
this, I have
over 1000 fry from most species at various stages of development.
Anyone in the A.K.A. who is interested in my fish and egg list can contact
by E-Mail at John at johndeluca_force9.co.uk We could maybe arrange to swap
eggs from different species.
