As a note of introduction, I have been lurking and learning about killifish
for about two months. So I certainly can't comment on the "?" of dirty water
where killi's are concerned. But, I have kept dwarf cichlids and I know this
to be a fact not only with my experience, but with many others. When the
water is changed every two weeks (30% change) this triggers something with
the fish to spawn towards the end of this period. "Just a thought..."
hmmm...and a good one at that.
