    Rare Killifish

    I am not sure what species are available but pretty sure most killies are considered annuals. However, many live longer than a year. I know they grow fast as a result of having to be ready for that next dry period. Fascinating fish!

You might reach out to Prime Time Aquatics to see if they know how to get ahold of the previous company...
