    Hello, while stripping down my cube I've noticed I actually have a large number of killifish fry in my tank, thing is I wasn't trying to breed them and I'd inadvertently added then into my nano with some moss I'd dumped to keep alive, after all it is my storage tank!
    Anyone any ideas on caring for them? Also what temp as it's a unheated tank?

    EDIT: I believe half to be Ember Tetra and the other Half Lamp Eye kilifish.

    Start hatching baby brine shrimp and see if you can get a microworm culture from somewhere. I imagine they're past the infusoria stage now as you can see them!

    Generally if the've been doing ok at room temp then I'd leave it at that. Most non-annual kilies do pretty well without extra heating for me. As Beeky says brine shrimp and microworms are the two best foods, but I use a high quality powdered food too that the fry really seem to enjoy. It's the finest grade of red crumb food from TA Aquaculture.
