Special Considerations:
Most Killifish including all Fundulopanchax scheeli 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.

Fundulopanchax scheeli are noted for allowing fry of all ages to live in the tank without any problems.

This is one of the better beginners Killifish.
