Special Considerations:
Fundulosoma thierryi is a soil-spawning Killifish form Ghana, Africa. Thierryi are pretty rare and sometimes hard to find but they are an excellent Killifsh for the tiny tank. They only grow to about one inch at maturity. They do very well on baby brineshrimp, micro worms or grindal worms.

The super tiny fry can be started off with green water, add a few microworms after a day or 2, they can start eating baby brineshrimp after one week.
Their egg incubation period is from 6 to 12 weeks depending on temperature and dryness of the soil.
