New to the AKA - Looking for Nothobranchius species
Jun 17th, 2020 at 8:36am
 
Hi All,

I am new to the AKA, but have been a member of both DKG and SKS. After almost 15 years without any killis I plan to start up again and am on the lookout for peat with eggs for Nothobranchius species. If anyone has any to sell & ship (or if you are close to Princeton, NJ I can come and pick up) please let me know.

Carl

I used to live in Green Brook, NJ and every month I went to the MAKA meetings. There are a lot of long-term very expert killi keepers in that group, and they usually have a lively auction. I don't know if they're meeting right now due to Covid. Contact information can be found here: http://maka.aka.org/ (also, mailto:webinfo.maka@gmail.com)

Thanks Matt. I have contacted MAKA now. Hopefully they can help. In the meantime I'll see if anything is on the auction site.

Hi Carl,

I have some N. Eggersi blue eggs. These were my first killis and Iíve had the most luck breeding these out of all the species I have attempted.

The eggs were dried 4/9 and should be ready to hatch soon. If you're interested PM me and Iíd be happy to share them with you.

Ken

Hi Ken, sent you a PM.

With the eggs being from early April they might be ready. Don't eggersi normally need about 3-4 months to develop?

No. Depending on temperature and humidity the development can be much quicker.

I typically hatch N. furzeri at 3 weeks. Most literature will tell you that they take 6-9 months... I have also hatched them later than a year by incubating cool and dry.

If the eggersi eggs are incubated about 76oF and the peat is fairly damp they should also be ready to hatch as early as 3 weeks. 8 weeks is quite feasible to get fry from them.

I should have some korthausae fish ready for distribution in a few weeks if you don't come right with eggs.

Good luck
