Killifish are a great addition to a tropical tank (if you don’t have bigger fish that will consider them prey). They’re peaceful and hardy, though they do like a heavily planted tank. They’re beautiful and vibrantly coloured. Killies breed in two ways: there are annual breeders and non-annual breeders. The annual type will bury their eggs in sand, and the eggs should be kept moist before they hatch in one to four months. The non-annual type are fairly easy to breed, and will attach their eggs to a spawning mop. Killifish generally live long enough to only breed once.

Bangkok is also the epicenter of Thailand’s close cultural affinity for tropical fish keeping and breeding. Not only are freshwater aquarium fish a major export from the region, but the keeping of aquarium fish is also extraordinarily popular and widespread here. From the pair of massive giant gourami (O. goramy) swimming placidly around a decorative fountain on my street corner to the aquariums (usually housing arowana or cichlids) proudly displayed in the entrances of many restaurants, tropical fish are everywhere in this city. And the best of them can be found in the famed Jatujak (often spelled Chatuchak) weekend market, which is why I found myself in a tuk tuk careening through multiple lanes of traffic on my way to the market shortly after my arrival in Bangkok. The Florida Tropical Fish Farms Association is a trade association of professional ornamental tropical fish and aquatic plant breeders.

At some point in your life you have probably had a fish tank in your home. Kids all over the world start out with guppies and goldfish in round bowls on their dressers. For some people, this has lead to a fish breeding business in the tropical fish market.Also consider the number of offspring you are likely to get from each species. Some species of tropical fish can have hundreds of offspring at one time. A percentage of these offspring will probably have to be culled, or destroyed, because their quality will not be up to your standards for your tropical fish breeding business. The small and weak should be culled so as not to cause problems in the entire tank environment.Even looking at the recent slew of children's movies that are based underwater, you can see how the popularity of tropical fish is increasing. Many tropical fish breeders have seen a rise in sales over the last two years alone. This has led the entire industry, from aquarium makers to salt providers, in increased sales and profits as well.Tropical fish breeding and raising fish to a marketable maturity will require time and patience. Do your homework on growth rates and reproductive rates of each species you plan to breed. You will also need to know the compatibility of different species if you plan to work with more than one in your tropical fish breeding business.All of our fish are spawned and raised by us at our tropical fish hatchery in Florida since 1991.
