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.

Tip of the Month:

Unless you have very soft water, you will eventually have to deal with "lime" buildup. When water evaporates, dissolved minerals are left behind as a white film or crust. A razor blade can remove much of the deposit, but this will scratch plastic badly. An easier and dust-free method for glass, plastic, or any other surface is to use a scrubbing pad dampened with household vinegar. The dilute acid quickly dissolves the minerals, and a thorough rinse removes any remaining vinegar.
