 Pseudepiplatys  annulatus  -  One  of  my  all-time  favourite  killifish  
 
 A  male:
 
 
 P.  annulatus  inhabit  swamps  and  slow-flowing  forest  streams  in  Guinea,  Sierra  Leone  and  Liberia  so  it  is  essential  to  depict  these  conditions  in  our  home  aquaria  if  you  intend  to  breed  them.  
 
 Setting  up  the  tank...
 Dimensions  –  12”  cube
 Water  should  be  very  soft  and  acidic…
 Water  parameters:
 TDS  –  50ppm
 pH  –  6
 Temp  –  25-26
 Water  movement  –  Slow
 They  don’t  like  much  water  movement  so  a  sponge  filter  with  minimal  bubble  rate  is  essential.  
 Feeding  –  As  I  always  emphasise,  live  food  is  a  must  for  conditioning  fish  for  breeding.  Feed  a  lot  of  live  food  but  make  sure  to  siphon  off  any  uneaten  food  as  they  will  rarely  eat  from  the  bottom.
 Water  changes  are  very  important,  I  change  30%  water  every  2  days  with  water  having  similar  parameters.
 
 A  pair:
 
 
 Have  added  a  piece  of  driftwood  and  few  IALs  to  cover  the  bottom  (helps  to  lower  the  pH  and  soften  the  water  further).  Also  add  a  lot  of  floating  plants  like  Amazon  frogbit  (limnobium  laevigatum)  as  it  will  not  only  provide  a  sense  of  security  for  the  adults  but  also  a  place  to  take  refuge  for  the  small  fries
 
 The  breeding  setup:
 
 
 Spawning:
 
 
 The  adults  won’t  eat  the  small  fries  so  the  fries  can  be  left  in  the  tank  itself.  However,  the  larger  siblings  will  eat  the  smaller  fries  from  the  next  batch  so  it  is  better  to  separate  the  batches  if  you  can  manage  multiple  tanks.  
 
 A  small  fry:
 
 
 The  fries  are  very  tiny  given  the  small  size  of  the  adults  themselves.  For  the  first  few  days  they  will  need  infusoria  so  a  lot  of  moss  in  the  tank  would  be  very  helpful.  Microworms  wont  be  an  ideal  foodsource  for  them  as  they  always  stay  at  the  top,  so  feed  them  vinegar  ells  and  bbs.   
 
 Update  to  follow  soon...Smile

 Superb.  Would  be  really  good  if  you  can  maintain  and  add  more  data  of  spawning  and  fry  care  (You  might  already  be  doing  that).
 
 Will  check  and  try  to  fix  those  images  later  tonight.

 @vijendra
 
 The  image  links  that  are  not  rendering  dont  have  the  last  part  /IMG_XXX.JPG.  That  is  the  reason  they  are  not  being  rendered.  If  you  replace  the  links  with  complete  urls  including  the  filename,  it  will  work.

 Thanks,  Just  stick  to  the  parameters  mentioned  and  feed  live  food  2-3  times  a  day,  spawning  will  follow...
 Will  surely  add  data  for  fry  care  soon....:)
