Nothobranchius kilomberoensis FTZ 10-18
Contrary to beliefs that Nothobranchius are easy to breed, I think it's not always the case, because some species can be a tough nut to crack, especially with the erratic hatch rate & henceforth. This species is one good example.
They are very camera shy & darts away almost as soon as anything approaches, so pardon for the poor quality, besides, I took these pictures with my handphone, so it can be a bit blurry but you can clearly tell how beautiful these fishes are.
The males are not very aggressive, nothing compared to most tank bruisers, so I'm able to keep 2 breeding pairs in a 12L tank. These fishes don't get very big, sizes ranging between 4-6cm for males & 3-4cm for the females. Prolific spawners but hatch rate is low, as compared to most Nothobranchius species.
I'll take better photos of these fishes next time, once I get a decent camera but for now, I don't want to disturb their honeymoon, let's see how it goes.
