The Clown Killifish (Epiplatys annulatus), is one of the most colorful nano fish there is. Its stunning color makes it an amazing choice to add to a nano aquarium, even those that house shrimp. Due to its native habitat, it is recommended that tanks have low flow or possibly no flow at all depending on weekly maintenance.
These fish are great as they are micro-preadators that occupy the top portion of tanks and eat small live foods. The males will have a pointed caudal fin, hence the nickname "Rocket Killifish". Females will have a rounded caudal fin with slightly less vibrant coloration. If breeding these fish is your goal we would recommend a species only tank as other fish will eat the fry.
The Clown Killifish can reach a max length of around 1.5 inches.
We feed these killifish an exclusive diet of live brine shrimp, frozen daphnia and cyclops.
Our Tank Parameters
Very pleased with my fish. Very nice size. Never had any that big. Love them.
These little guys & gals
Are so cute! I added 1 male and 2 females to my shrimp tank and they’re pretty active. They like to hide in the plants but the male is quite personable and seems to know me as his feeder. They’re eating frozen cyclops right now and baby brine.
Todos llegaron sanos y activos definitivamente un gran lugar para ordenar sus peces
I ordered 3 female clown killies, because I have a pair and the male stresses out the female. The 3 were nice and healthy, and were all female! So now my male has 4 females to divide his harassment between 😂
I wasn’t really prepared for how tiny these fish are, even though I knew they were nano fish, but they are a really fun addition to my nano tank.
