    I’m torn!! I saw both at my lfs and they are beautiful. The one thing tho is that I have black substrate and a black background so it would maybe be hard to see the blue shrimp. The blue ones are also more expensive. Anyone have experience with both? Are they any different other than colors...

    Interested in breeding gardneri killifish. Have some questions

    I saw some gardneri killis at my lfs and I saw a pair that were dancing around each other. I’m very interested in these fish. I have some options. Can they go in my 20 long with neon and ember tetras? If that doesn’t work I have a 10 gallon. Are pairs ok? Can the eggs hatch naturally?
