Killies in the mailbox!

I used to have a rack with 40 tanks just for killies. Mainly Rivulus and Aphyosemion. At some point I had to scale down and most of the killies went out the door.

Recently I have regained some interest and not so long ago I showed my Aphyosemion aff. pascheni which is a really pretty species.

I have also managed to get a group of young Fundulopanchax scheeli and trade myself to a pair of one of my favourites; Aphyosemion striatum from friends who live close to me. The striatum-strain is the Moyoko GJS 00/32 which was collected by, among others, Danish breeder Mogens Juhl.

On Aquabid I have also been tempted a few times already, getting eggs of Aphyosemion mengilai GEM 2005/6 from user "Nachowin". The best packed eggs I have recieved in along time! Packed between two sheets of white filterwool-like material instead of peat or coconut fibre. Makes it easy to find the eggs!

Also eggs of some Austrolebias for the garden has been recieved from Germany. Nicely labelled with all data by Dieter Oberle (username: Killifischblackforest).

Good information is important when buying eggs.
