Comments:  Fundulopanchax Gardneri Misaje is a Switch Spawning Killifish from Africa. Misaje is the most colorful of the easy to keep Gardneri complex of African Killies. It gets to up to a little over 2 and a half inches long (6.5cm). Will thrive in most normal aquarium conditions including temperatures from 68 to 77° F (20-25C) and any moderate pH and dH, but prefers soft and slightly acidic water for spawning. Misaje will accept most aquarium foods including live, frozen and even some dry foods.
A pair or trio can be comfortably kept in a 2.5 gallon tank. While Misaje are usually peaceful the males are sometimes rough with a single female and if only 2 males are in a tank they will tend to fight. When keeping just about any Killifish it is better to keep either 1 male to a tank or 3 or more to a tank for this reason.
