Nothobranchius rachovii

Nothobranchius rachovii
Latin Name: Nothobranchius rachovii

Origin: Africa

Size: 2 inches (5cm)

Suggested Minimum Tank Size: 2 gallon +

Preferred Temperature:
68-80°F (20-27°C)
Special Considerations:
Nothobranchius rachovii is another soil-spawning Killifish form Africa. This is one of the most colorful freshwater fish in the world and arguably the most beautiful.
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 rachovii in a species only tank.
A pair will do ok in a 2 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 fantastic.
