    Hello

    You can probably get females at LFSes too, just have to look hard. There are often a few females mixed in with every batch of mostly male fish.

    Or I have a friend who keeps F. gardneri (or nigerianus, the two species are quite similar), and you can get fish from him. PM me or reply here if you need that.

    I also have quite a few other killie species nowadays (10++ species right now), so if you're really keen to get into them, now is a great time.

    Good to hear about your success. And all the best with the Thailand eggs. Which species did you get?

    I'm glad to meet a fellow killie hobbyist too - there are so few of us around in SG/MY. I'm in touch with a few other killie guys, but not on the forums. We're on a WhatsApp group chat. Can add you into that if you're keen ^_^

    Nice set of nothos - exciting

    You can't send PMs because you need a certain post count for that. Let me try to PM you the link.

    Edit: can't send you PM too. Here's the link: https://chat.whatsapp.com/LBzEBy1Xk7X4ZhPqddIuf6

    I maintain a few backup cultures but not in large quantity. I can spare 10+ animals of various sizes.

    Very few people are active on this forum any more. For example, all the guys I know who still maintain cultures of daphnia are not here.

    Cool. I have managed to acquire moina from C328 , and i have got more great news.. most of the eggs i got from thailand... the Nothos bunch have hatched..

    what i have done is.. i have put all the monia in clean water and have a culture going and then i dropped the fry tray into it.

    the first batch of panchax just one loner.. swiming with second and 3rd batch of fry is now about close to 1 inch and its always in the surface now i think its a male. .. atleast they can handle BBS .. the second bunch of killi eggs have hatched .. about 30 of them..

    Daphnia does not seem to sustain tannin.. where as killi fish love tannin.. also if you leave plants in there for infusoria. tannin kills the light so the plants rot and hence more infusoria but then it kills the oxygent.. running on a very gentle aristone.. the fry are so fragile.. extreme.. even guppy fry will zoom off strong during siphon..

    more upates later

    Congrats with the killies - fun isn't it? And really, not that hard. I wonder why more people don't try it.

    About daphnia and tannin, I have tried Daphnia magna in low pH, tannin-stained water - they did not survive. They do survive in my tanks/tubs using dechlorinated tap water and salted water (0.5 to 1 gram per litre).

    I found that uneaten moina stay alive even in acidic and tannin-stained water, for a couple of days at least (potentially even longer - I have just "topped up" moina into these tubs and there are always some swimming about).

    That's usually the case. I don't think anyone has ever managed to get collection codes from the Thai sellers. They just don't keep track of it.
