Hi Y'all !

The Texas Area Killifish Organization's (TAKO) show was a success from
all indications that I had ! There were native North American killifishes
displayed and also African, South American and European species that made
a great display for all conventioneers to see ! There are killifishes
from all continents that will amaze even the hard- core cichlid or
marine-fish fanciers, in that these fish are so brightly colored and/or
interesting that even the most jaded aquarists can become addicted to
these killifishes charms ! Some of the African species equal the
brilliance of marine species  and can be kept in a 2 1/2 gallon tank of
freshwater. Furthermore, the only obstacle that is encountered to keep
them from breeding is a divider in the tank! Otherwise, just put a fully
conditioned female into the tank with a male, give them the proper egg
receptacle; such as a butter-dish of peatmoss or a nylon mop and then
watch the action develop ! And then,  the eggs are given the proper
develoment time to incubate prior to hatching! After a couple of weeks or
more, depending upon the species,
then you may have a whole new generation of these interesting fish to
raise and propogate again!

If anyone of our members is interested, please see the www.aka.org site
and join the American Killifish Association.
