What a beautiful fish!
Most Killifish including Fundulopanchax gardneri Misaje prefer live or frozen foods. This fish is an egglayer with a 14 to 21 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.

Egg incubation can be from 2 weeks to 6 weeks depending on temperature and whether you keep them in a moist soil medium or in water. Fry can be fed baby brine shrimp upon hatching.
This is an excellent Killifish for beginners.
