COVER T 0611

About the Cover

The colorful fish on this month's cover is a notho, a killifish in the genus Nothobranchius. Its full designation is Nothobranchius rachovii Beira Airport MZCS 0896. To a killie aficionado, that mouthful tells where and when the population was collected for the hobby, and that's very important information to conservation-minded hobbyists. In this special killie issue, you can learn about these beautiful but very unusual fish and how you can get started keeping and breeding them.

Tip of the Month:

That most fish like bananas? Seeds and fruits make up a good portion of the diet of many popular aquarium fishes, but even fish that would never see a banana in their native habitat will probably enjoy eating one. Try a small portion of mashed banana, and see if your fish don't go ape over it!
