"I have now had these killis for a few years now. They do require a tight fitting, gapless lid, as they are jumpers. I initially lost a few from jumping, even having them swim up the filter and jump from there. They also require a careful planning of the fish put into the aquarium. They will eat just about anything they can fit in that big mouth they have... Including any offspring they may produce. After about a year with my killis I was cleaning gravel when I noticed a pair of big pair of black eyes swimming around my bucket. On further inspection of the tank, many little eggs were attached the plants, and a few more fry were found. I soon had about 15 - 20 in a net nursery, and of them, the largest ate his way to solidarity. I had another that I released into the tank at about 1 inch long, but he vanished from the tank in under 5 minutes, so I would recommend waiting until they are about 2 inches long if you have other killis in the tank. Other than that, they are fairly hardy and they do love a good meal (I fed mine dried baby shrimp). Good luck and much fun with your killis!"
