Comments: This beautiful and hardy killifish makes a great fish for the aquarium. The male is a mix of colored dots, while the female is more subdued in coloration. Keep at least one male and three females in a brackish-water tank with some plants and driftwood, and they will be content. You can catch them in salt marshes and esturaries, or buy them at a bait shop. Be sure to treat them for parasites if do the latter.
