    I so envy you. Killifish are the only fish group other than sunfishes that i haven't had yet. They're unavailable where im at you see lol

    Have you kept panchax or flagfishes? They're more hardy

    The i mentioned are quite easy and breeds readily. Panchax also does well in a community tank setting.

    Better safe than sorry! It's usually better to very lightly water them half-day ahead than a few days later. With this an early rain effect would be simulated.
