    Your water is fine for killifish and you will probably get lots of male babies due to the pH being above 7.0. Whenever I have kept killifish, Apistogramma dwarf cichlids or rainbowfish in water with a pH above 7.0, I get more male than female young. Which is good because they are more colourful and sell better. :)

    Well, here I sit looking out the window waiting for a delivery boy with my gardneri. It's a lonely vigil. I'm on the AKA's radar. I had an e-mail from them. Oh well, the tank has been up for a week. The plants are in and the water smells nice. I want my fish !!!

    This got missed I guess, and while I cannot myself explain it as I have never bothered with this, some aquarists do. Specific conductance is the conductivity of water, perhaps best explained here:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conductivity_(electrolytic)

    Some aquarium fish books do use this measurement.

    Thank you for that link Byron. That's pretty brainy and technical for me but it does explain some things I wasn't sure about. I was able to comprehend some of it.

    Are they home yet? Also, I thought there was a Betta in your tank. I was really confused for a few seconds there. Looks really good, hope to see pictures of your new fish soon!

    Nope. They have not yet arrived. My Betta is in his own 2 1/2 gallon and a brand new 5 gallon sits awaiting my gardneri. Now I have to set my 20 up for fry raising.
