So Much To Do!

So Much To Do!

As I work on KillieNutz Online, I have come to realize just how much work I have to accomplish to make the website into the best it can be.  I have a hope KillieNutz will become the primary site  for killifish hobbyists around the world to seek out information about the hobby and the latest news on conventions, shows and club meetings.  I do not want to restrict this to one region, but to encompass the entire hobby worldwide. Is this a huge undertaking – yep!  Fortunately, I have time on my side (well as much time as life offers me).   […]

New Notho Found

It's Hard to Believe

It’s Hard to Believe

I was looking at the May BNL and when I reached the Fish & Egg Listings I was deeply disturbed. There were no killies listed for sale.  In April there was a single seller.  I don’t expect much during the winter, but usually we are back up in numbers by April. Even on Aquabid, the number of American listings were minimal – only a couple of people offering anything for sale or auction. I am really concerned with the state of our hobby.  I know we still boast 700+ members, but where are the sellers who supply new members and […]

A Foolish Obsession?

A Foolish Obsession?

Its a little humorous.  I got back into keeping killies with the simple idea of having a few tanks and maybe breeding a few pairs of fish.  I am beginning to think there is something seriously wrong with me (I know lots of other people believe I am nuts). Happily, I now have a few species in the fish room and am looking for a few more.  I have set up an interesting community tank in my living room,  It contains Aplo. normanni and Epi. annulatus and some floating plants.  It would be cool to see fry down the road […]

Work Progressing on Killienutz Database

Work Progressing on Killienutz Database

I have begun to update the Killienutz Online “Killifish’ Database.  Most of the known species of Nothobranchius are in place with individual pages.  These pages are not complete, but will be filled in over time.  The ultimate goal is to create a system with both hobbyist and taxonomic information about every species along with photos of as many as possible. As for the photographic end, I would greatly appreciate any and all submissions of pictures with the knowledge that these photos will be used in future volumes of the Encyclopedia of Killifish.  Unfortunately I did not start taking photos 30 […]
