COVER T 0612

About the Cover

With their myriad of colors and patterns, killifish look as if their bodies were hand painted by an artist. Their vivid appearance is part of their appeal, as are their interesting reproductive habits-many live only for a year, and their eggshave to be incubated in peat moss before hatching. Others, like month's cover killie and the emblem of the American Killifish Association-the blue gularis (Fundulopanchax sjostedti "Niger Delta")-can live for many years and spawn in foliage, as Charles Nunziata explains in his article "African Plant-Spawning Killies" on p. 58.

Tip of the Month:

To protect valuable specimens, set up their tank with two heaters, each rated at half the required wattage. If one sticks on, the other will stay off, and the water will not overheat as much or as quickly.
