Hi, Pals
I didn?t see much Killies threads here, but I?m sure ? here are plenty of their fans!
So, let?s begin one big Killies pictures thread and have a fun? :woot:
I received a nice gift from a friend last Sunday,
and it?s inspire me to clean at last all my killies tanks and make a looooong photo series of these my lovely pets?.Image
I will begin with those two Killies specimens of the Nothobranchius family,
whose are a part of that gift - Nothobranchius Rachovii "Kruger National Park"
and Nothobranchius Rachovii Beira '98

So, before continue I hope to see some of your Killies photos
and know how much Fans we are at all?!? :)

How beautiful!
It's always a pleasure to see your work!
On first glances, one wouldn't really see much difference - but in the tail shots it really shows.
What gorgeous sparkly fish!

Lovely photos Aquasaur! As always....... :rolleyes:

Great shots Susan! I think I completely missed the fact you kept Killies... :crazy: I think I got overpowered my the millions of Endlers! Great little fish though.... After looking at the link Amerce posted I am sorely tempted.... but after unveiling my plans for the cube, I think another tank plan would end me in a divorce court!

Looks like millions doesn't it. I also have American Flag Fish which is actually in the killie family.

Least ways with killies you don't have to have a big tank. Most of mine are in 10 gal. but there is also a few in 5 gal. I keep my killies on a rack which holds plenty of small tanks.

Also breeding cories and albino bristlenoses.

WOW, Susan?I?m impressed of your killies collection?Image
And very glad to see another serious fan of these lovely fishes !
Thanks for sharing and hope to see more future updates?!

Image

Who said that Killies couldn?t smile?Image

Image

Those Guy even came to ?photographic stage? very inadvertent and unshaven?Image

Thanks you have some really nice Nothos there. I would like to get into some more of them. I would like to find some Korhouse Reds and some eggersi's before too long. Got to set up some more tanks.

I love the level of detail you capture - these fish are by no means slow! :D

I see what you mean by "unshaven" too - that amused me!
Thank you as always Hristo!

SK, I always love your Australe Gold!

Thanks, IBF !

Ok, the next is - Nothobranchius Guentheri "Zanzibar",
Almost similar to this before, but after a few of my macro shots,
hope you will see the difference and his individual beauty and charm?Image
Those variety of Nothobranchius had turn out the ?Big Warriors? in this Killies tank of mine?Image
Usually, the only one is the Leader?, but often some opponent musters courage, even only just to show off?Image
Here are this moments I want to share with you?

All of natures creations are beautiful, period. As is with nature, there are always exceptions, and this just another brilliant example. Captured in all its splendour by a master of his craft, "Hristo Hristov". You are an inspiration to us all, thank you,

Thanks, Mick, for that such a great compliment...Image

That "Bad Boy Blue" - <span style='color:blue'>Nothobranchius Guentheri Blue</span> was also a gift to me.
He is not so photogenic like other upper ones, but is interesting and rare variety.
