About the Cover

Killifish are often difficult to find in the hobby. They come from far-flung locations, and many have short life spans and challenging breeding habits, but their beauty makes all the effort to find, keep, and breed them worthwhile to dedicated hobbyists. This month we feature several articles on finding, keeping, and breeding these tiny gems in celebration of this year’s 52nd annual American Killifish Association convention.

Species Profiles


Tip of the Month:

That while most fish are either freshwater or marine, with a small number of species regularly inhabiting brackish estuarine habitats, a few fishes are at home in water of any salinity, including hypersaline - saltier than seawater! Some of these species, like the bull shark Carcharhinus leucas, are not potential aquarium specimens, but the group includes the popular sailfin molly Poecilla spp. and the much underappreciated native American sheepshead minnow Cyprinodon variegatus. These can be kept under fresh, brackish, or marine conditions.
