How to look after
(Other members of the genus Epiplatys)
ADULT SIZE: 4 cm
WATER CONDITIONS: Not critical
TEMPERATURE RANGE: 23-27 C
FOOD: Feed Epiplatys annulatus small live-foods and fine grade dried foods
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.
