Nearly 10 years ago a good killifish friend of mine had a pair that spawned
once every other week for something like 2 months. He had the temperature in
the low 80's that might have turned her around quicker. They probably would
have continued for quite awhile if it wasn't for the heater failure.
Unfortunately that was before APR and good culture techniques (they were too
small for philodina) so nothing grew from the thousands of fry that he had. It
would be nice if they can repeat their fry raising experience, the spawning
part, from what I have seen in the past was fairly trivial.
