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:
The number of eggs a female fish produces is related to the amount of parental care given? A cod might shed several million eggs in a single spawning, leaving them to disperse in the open ocean, while a cichlid that broods her eggs in her mouth and cares for the fry after hatching may produce only a half dozen per clutch.
