The Killifish family are best in pairs. Seahorse Aquarium keeps all killifish in Pairs and recommend to house both sexes in the aquarium.

The Clown Killifish is captive bred but is normally found in water holes, streams, and marshes in Africa. The term Killy is derived from the Dutch word meaning ditch or channel, not because this fish is a killer in the aquarium. These fish are ideal fish for the community aquarium, and will add some vibrant colour and activity to these aquariums.

The males of this species are very brightly coloured, with the body having alternating black and yellow vertical stripes resembling a bumblebee. The dorsal and anal fins are very dramatic with blue and red stripes.

The female of this species are more subdued in colour and form. This species of Killifish is not an annual species. Their eggs do not need to be removed from the water after spawning.

They prefer to lay their eggs within a spawning mop or java moss. They are very easy to breed, and the eggs will hatch within 12 to 14 days. Once hatched, place the fry in a small holding tank and feed the newborn fish live baby brine shrimp.

Clown Killifish will accept most live foods such as brine shrimp, white worms, tubifex, and some dry flake and frozen foods.
