Breeding Report: Aphyosemion exigoideum
Water conditions: Moderately soft and acidic, 20-23oC
Spawning Method: Spawning Mops
Sex ratio: Roughly equal
Breeding difficulty: Easy
Success: Very successful
Other Comments: This is a beautiful and easy Killifish that doesn't have any bad qualities, if normal aquarium maintenance is used. They seem to relish grindal worms (which I raise in great quantity on top of peat and feed inexpensive cat food)and brine shrimp nauplii. Egg production is medium , but steady. They color up and are sexable in about 4 months. Dim light makes them comfortable and they show well under these conditions.
