Normans African Lamp Eye Killi

Description

The African Lamp Eye Killifish, Aphyosemion australe, is a popular species among aquarium enthusiasts due to its vibrant colors and relatively easy care requirements. Here are some key points to consider for their optimal care:

  1. Temperature: African Lamp Eye Killifish are typically found in warm, tropical environments. To keep them healthy and active, maintain the water temperature between 72°F and 78°F (22°C to 26°C). It's crucial to maintain a stable temperature as drastic fluctuations can stress the fish and make them susceptible to diseases.

  2. Minimum Tank Size and Fish Type: As these fish are relatively small, a tank size of at least 10 gallons (38 liters) is suitable for a small group. However, if you plan to keep a larger number or other fish along with them, it's recommended to have a tank size of 20 gallons (75 liters) or more. It's important to note that they can be a bit territorial, especially during breeding, so providing enough space and hiding spots is crucial.

Tank Mates: They generally do well with peaceful fish of similar size, such as small tetras, rasboras, and other non-aggressive community fish. Avoid housing them with larger or aggressive species that might bully or prey on them. Providing plants and other decorations can help create hiding spots and territories, reducing potential conflicts.

Proper water quality, regular maintenance, and a well-balanced diet are also essential for their well-being. Make sure to monitor the water parameters regularly and conduct partial water changes to maintain good water quality. Additionally, a varied diet that includes high-quality flakes, small live or frozen foods such as daphnia, brine shrimp, and bloodworms will ensure they receive the necessary nutrients for their health and coloration.
