First off welcome to killies, secondly there are 2 different kinds of
killies. Annuals and non annuals. Meaning, annuals are fish that use
peat moss to spawn in because their natural habitat region goes through
a dry period where their ponds dry up. Non annuals are called top
spawners meaning that they normally spawn on plants in the wild. Their
natural habitat doesn't dry up but remains wet all year round. These
fish come from small rivers, creeks and ponds that are wet all year.
You need to decide which type of fish you would like to keep. I myself
don't like playing with peat moss so I keep non annuals. Not that
there is anything wrong with annuals, I just do better with the mop
For beginners fish for Non annuals I would suggest any of the
Fundulopanchax Gardneri locations, Aphyosemion Australe, Epiplatys Daget
and Epiplatys Chaperi.
For Annuals I would suggest Nothobranchius
Guentheri, Notho Foerschi and Cynolebias Whitei .
Hope this helps you get started out. Check out the AKA web page for
more info on these species and their requirements. And good luck.
