Lucania goodei

10. September 2010

Once more we were able to stock another real gem among the aquarium fish: Lucania goodei. The Bluefin killifish originates from Florida and reaches a length of about 5 cm. Our specimens are German bred. In contrast to most other species of killifish this is a schooling species. To observe the harmless comment fights of the males is really marvelous.

The Bluefin killifish spawns between plants and the eggs need about 14 days to hatch. Lucania goodei is found in hard water in the wild and prefers such conditions also in the aquarium. Owners of a garden pond can keep the fish even in central Europe from late spring to early autumn under outdoor conditions. These animals will develop particularly splendid colours.

For our customers: the fish have code 329003 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Lucania: Latin, means “the shining one”. goodei: dedication name.
