Auction is for 30+ eggs of the beautiful African annual killifish Nothobranchius melanospilus Mwakanga TAN 19-23, packed in peat. Incubation time is about 4 months. Fry will accept microworms and newly hatched baby brine shrimp shortly after hatching; juveniles and adults thrive on most frozen and live aquarium foods, and will accept some flake or micro pellet foods as well. Additional eggs available.

This is a classic annual killifish that is moderately easy to keep and breed. Males get about 2" with red tail. bluish body and some yellow on the fins. Title picture is of male from preceding generation; females as usual show very little color but has black freckled markings. Occasional jumpers; keep 'em covered.

Parameters: I don't use heaters, so tanks are in the low 70s in winter and high 70s in summer. Our water is moderately hard (140mg/l) with a pH of 7.5, and I add one tablespoon of aquarium salt per 5 gallons. I've never checked it myself, but a couple of buyers report my water arrives with a TDS of 900-1000 ppm.

Shipping: I ship to CONTINENTAL US only; shipping may need to be coordinated around weather and postal holidays. Eggs usually ship the Saturday, Monday; or Tuesday after payment clears to reduce risk of spending a weekend parked outside some postal sorting station. Please include $10.00 per shipment for Priority Mail, or $30 for Express Mail. Multiple egg purchases can be shipped together or eggs can ship with fish for no additional shipping charge.

Payment: please pay by money order or paypal within 3 days of purchase. The email address that Aquabid provides in the winning bidder notice is my paypal address, so if you know your total, feel free to pay before contacting me. Otherwise, I usually send out an email within a day of auction end. If you prefer to pay by money order, the Aquabid address is again correct; please let me know when money order is in the mail. I am often looking to clear tanks to make room for the next hatch, so prompt payment is always appreciated.

Replacement: Some eggs do not survive the rigors of shipping. If you get a zero or meager hatch after their due date, I will either replace or refund the price of the eggs. The most dangerous part of their trip is often the time spent sitting in the mailbox or on the porch. If you unable to be home for mail delivery, please consider having the parcel held at your local post office for you to pick up. Shipping charges are not refundable.
