    I am looking for Oryzias latipes, also known as Medaka and Japanese killifish or rice fish. Anybody know where to buy them?

    I don't know if there's any Oryzias latipes around. The last time there were some, was somewhere back in 2004, I think. I don't have any O.latipes except for Oryzias cf. woworae.
    Currently Keeping: Cyphotilapia sp. & Hypancistrus zebra

    I saw Oryzias Latipes 'white' at Tropical Fish International at Pasir Ris today. A tankful of them there, i think estimated 30-40 fishes. If you are interested in the price, pm me.

    I saw both 'white' and 'black' Oryzias latipes at Tropical Fish International yesterday.
    Small is beautiful.

    Hi guys,
    Thank you for the information. Will check them out soon. I have no idea how to get there so I will take a cab. Anybody have experience on how to get out of the place by taxi? I afraid cabs don't want to go to farms even with booking.

    Thank you very much guys, went there yesterday and brought 15 Black Oryzias latipes. They resemble the wild Medaka in the Japan, except that size is a little bit bigger.
    Calling a cab is not difficult at all. I will definitely go there again and explore other farms.

    How much do they cost? Can they tolerate our climate?

    Re: Looking for Medaka/Japanese killifish

    Bro please check with bro alvin aquarist chamber directly for the price.

    but good price for high grade medaka,

    i m keeping them in my room temperature, but slight lower, probably at 28C or less, cause i on the air con time to time.

    should be easy to keep.

    cheers
