I got three eggs in the floating mop this morning. All the fish from
Michigan that I breed need a cold period below 50 and a short light photo
period to spawn except the Killifish. Maybe Killi's these far northern
representatives haven't forgotten their more southern family origins? F.
notatuis, dispar and now diaphanus seem to come into spawning condition in
tanks that get no colder then 60 with 12 to 15 hours of light. F. diaphanus
surprised me by spawning this early the other two waited until the tanks
warmed to 70 around June.
Bruce your the Fundulus man any ideas?
