AQUARIUM CARE: Epiplatys annulatus (or Psuedoepiplatys annulatus is a very popular killifish, often seen in aquarium shops. This is a very small delicate species, that must live in a species tank. Being so small it requires the smallest foods, artemia, small daphnia and grindal worms.

BREEDING: Breeding is not difficult, the eggs, and fry are incredibly small though. Luckily the adults are not particularly carniverous, so a long term set up is probably the easiest way to go. If the fish are fed newly hatched artemia daily, fry will soon appear with the adults. Picking eggs seems to be a hit and miss affair, and may breeders simply do not bother.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

What fish are good community fish? There is no absolute answer to this, but in general a community tank should contain only species that will tolerate each others behaviour, are approximately the same size, eat the same foods, and accept the same water conditions. Hardy tank bred fish that have adapted somewhat to local water conditions, and have no special dietary requirements usually make good candidates
