Lamp eye Killi fish

Recommended Posts

Some time ago I was given some lamp eye killifish, ( Normanii )

My mate hadnt had any success at breeding them so I didnt hold to much hope for myself in doing any better. I very rarely change the water of this tank and only feed the BBS and Grindel worms. Today I was carrying out a major water change on all tanks. After draining out most of the water from the lamp eye tank I thought MMM there seems to be a lot of movement for just four fish, so on putting on my glasses and counting them I now have twelve. So I guess that means they have bred. I am feeling lucky now so I will move them to a big tank that they can have all to themselfs and hopfully they will breed again.

Cheers

Well done Les! I do like the look of the Lamp Eyes :)

You will have to take a few photos once you set them up in their new tank!!

Congrats les! I just googled them and lamp eye are indeed interesting fish, they were nothing like what I expected to see.

Yeah, once everything is set up... Photos would be awesome. You sure you can't just take one of them in their current tank? ;)

Hi Irsacae

Last winter I didnt have the lamp eye or gold panchax in heated tanks and the went well. I will put a heater in with the lamp eye soon though as I want them to breed over this winter so I have bigger numbers for summer.

Cheers
