Was in Fishchicks today

Recommended Posts

That's a funny thread title and post.

But I was at Subscape today and saw my first Killi in person... I made a SQUEE noise and think that I wants it.

Then I came home with an angel fish the size of a pea.

Just saw her post a video of them. Luckily I am not a huge fan of annual killifish.

I remember a time when I was desperate for another Betta rutilans pair. Now my main pair have started breeding weekly again, and I have 8 or 9 snotty and argumentative adults to separate out *lol*

I have a little scarlet badis male. My other male jumped to his demise sadly through a tiny hole in the gladwrap. Scarlet badis are so adorable. My guy zips around his 10L tank and hunts down the grindal worms and BBS I put in there. If you love bettas, you will definitely love scarlet badis.

True saw the videos as well.

The guys look pretty big already though :(

But currently I am still trying to obtain a larger Aphyosemion collection and don't want to delve across to the other groups

Oh, they look so much nicer in person. They're only ~2cm TL, but I don't know if that's large or small for them. someone does have other Killies in store as well.

As for the scarlet badis, they are small at ~1cm. There are also some Chocolate gouramis and Samurai Gouramis in store. But both gourami species need super soft water.

I so have to go up and visit someone's store. It sounds like a fish-lovers heaven. Wish I had more space and more money.

Rachovii are the most colourful fish Ive ever kept.They are hard work as you are constantly collecting eggs preparing peat wetting peat and feeding the voracious fry.These ones are probably the Beira 98 strain as there fry are larger and easier to raise than the strain we had decades ago.They are very prolific and a great challenge

Nice! Hey Briztoon can please check which killies she has when you are in there next? I don't want to disturb them ringing and asking which killies they have as I have most of that are in Australia, but if someone gets anything I don't have I'd love some.

Hi Doug,

Yeah I do like the plant spawners more! :blush: You should come over if you come this way again. I actually was going to ring you to see if you have any barbatus at the moment.
