A few photos are used as historical where the photographer has passed away or no longer able to be contacted.
I thank all those for permissions & welcome any photos of fish not shown in this work.

What's New..

Continuing the work on the Code Library

I am trying to build up my collection of
Killifish Journals from around the world.
If anyone has spare copies of issues not
listed on my page please e-mail me.

A group of us long term killie breeders each with 40-50+ years of experience have
created a new group called
Killifish UK on facebook.
We were very concerned about a rapid fall in membership & problems in the management of the BKA (Summer 2023). Killifish UK was formed to hold enthusiasts together & put some new life into the UK Killie hobby. It rapidly exceeded 1,000 members.
The BKA is now back to a full team of motivated MC members & things are looking much better.
We encourage anyone not already a member to join our association HERE.
Our March auction raised £355 for charity.

If you are collecting in West Africa or have information on codes not listed in the code
library please let me know so I can update
the records.

There are loads of photos out there of populations
of fish not included in this site.
If you can help out with any to help fill in the
gaps please get in touch.

Help preserve old data on collections &
photographs here. Don't let them sit on shelves
or attic boxes to rot. We love to see this old stuff. So much material not given an airing.
