The British Killifish Association is an organisation dedicated to the preservation, by propogation and conservation of all species of Killifish.
Adult Membership is currently £17 annually (UK). For that price you get;
1/ A monthly copy of the BKA Killi-News.
2/ With membership, a Nominal Role gives you all the members located in your part of the country who have a wealth of experience and information, some of whom have bred Killis for decades.
3/ Access to the BKA's informative website and its members only area, which include;
* An index of killifish species with notes on how to keep and breed them.
* A list of which species are being kept by members.
* A new BKA forum where you can get advice on keeping killis from breeders, some of whom have kept killis for over 20 years.
4/ Access to eggs and fish of all these wonderfully colourful and interesting species, which are not readily available in your local aquarist shops. (Just you try going there and seeing if you can get any! If you can you're very lucky)
5/ An online forum allowing "instant" Killi advice.
With what other type of aquarium fish could you put a handful of peat into a small tub of aquarium water in the evening and in the morning have hungry fry swimming about ready to feed?
Some of the most popular Killifish are pictured here and include;
Fundulopanchax gardneri nigerianus
Fundulopanchax scheeli scheeli
Aphyosemion Bivvittatum Funge
Nothobranchius Palmaqvesti 95-16
Most Killis are found in tropical climates of Africa, South America and a few species are native to some countries bordering the Mediterranean. Some Killis are very rare fish and are threatened species in the wild due a combination of factors such as;
1/ Habitat destruction in the wild.
2/ Low rates of propogation.
3/ Global warming affecting the range, habitat and breeding habits of Killis.
4/ Lack of knowledge of species. A new species could potentially be discovered and declared extinct in the same year.
DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT THIS YEAR AND JOIN THE BRITISH KILLIFISH ASSOCIATION.
