    Killies

    I am looking for a good stock to put in my 150, and ran across some Killies on Aquabid. Can you mix Killies? I think they would look AWESOME in this tank, especially with a lot of different colors. Any help would be appreciated.

    i was told that there were some larger breeds that might look good in there. Do you know of any that are larger? I have seen the golden wonder killies at the LPS and they were a pretty good size.

    Ok, I'll give you about what I think is a medium size. I think around 3-5 inces would be medium for me, anything smaller would be tiny. I want something larger than Neons, even though I really like those lol.

    Kayla I have been doing some searching for you and found out that there are some killies that grow to be 5" at max size. If your still interested in the I will find out the name (I forgot to write it down).

    Blue Gularis is the common name and the scientific name is Fundulopanchax sjostedti, they are a striking fish with awesome finnage!

    Thanks! I looked them up and it says something about they should really be kept by themselves because they like to nip fish, like Guppies etc. And I asked a buddy of mine and they recommended the Clown Killie. It's smaller than 5" I think is what they said. I don't just HAVE to do Killies, but I thought they would make a nice addition to the tank if they were compatable. I have got to find a place where I can get Green Neons from because they aren't sold around here, so most likely I'll have to get them offline. And to make it worse it's really cold here and it's only going to get colder.

    While I am on the subject of my tank, I ran across some more fish that I thought looked nice. The Gold Tetra. :D
