Nothobranchius guentheri

Nothobranchius guentheri
Latin Name:
Nothobranchius guentheri

Origin: Zanzibar, Africa

Size: 1½ inch (4cm)

Suggested Minimum Tank Size: 1 gallon +

Preferred Temperature:
68-80°F (20-27°C)
Sexual Differences: Males more colorful

Special Considerations:
The guentheri is a soil-spawning Killifish form Africa. This is a very colorful little fish and one of the best Killifish for beginners.
Males are pretty aggressive but get along ok if MORE than 2 are in the same tank, never keep only 2 males. Due to their aggressiveness its best to keep guentheri in a species only tank.
A pair will do ok in a one gallon tank, but a bigger tank is better. A group of 4 or 5 males and 6 to 8 females in a 10 gallon tank is awesome.
