Killifish have an undeserved reputation for being difficult to keep, aggressive, or short-lived. Unlike most tropical fish, killifish species are most often referred to by their scientific name and details of their collection from the wild. These names can be long and intimidating such as Nothobranchius rachovii Beira 98 rather than “Bluefin Notho”.
A common misconception is killifish are overly delicate and require live foods. Most of the popular killifish species are easy to keep can be raised on high-quality commercial flakes, pellets, or frozen foods. Males can exhibit aggression toward each other they are not “killer fish”. Some “annual” species live for less than a year, but many will live for several years.
