Hi to all,
I started to breed killies last summer when Jim Robinson gave me a pair of
Fundulopanchax gardneri N'sukka.What I have done is I gather eggs and I put
them in not too wet peat moss. I keep them for there for about 20-25 days
and then I dump everything into a 2.5 gallon aquarium. I noticed that few
minutes after I dumped eggs and peat moss into aquarium , eggs started to
Hatching ratio is really high. I have usually 20 out of 25
I hope this will help.
I would like to thank Jim Robinson from Missisauga Ontario for helping me to
start with killies.
