Aphyosemion splendopleure prefers live or frozen foods. This fish is an plant spawning egglayer with a 14 day incubation period. You can usually raise some fry in the same tank with the adults, this is very possible if you add a squirt of baby brine shrimp into the tank from time to time.

Fry can be fed baby brine shrimp upon hatching. You can raise a fair amount of fry right in the tank with the adults. Heavy planting will help in this endeavor
This is an excellent Killifish for beginners.
