The Norman’s Lampeye Killifish is compatible with other peaceful fish and invertebrate species that thrive in a planted aquarium, care must be taken to not add species that will outcompete the Norman’s Lampeye Killifish for food. Also, other fish species will eat most of the fry of the Norman’s Lampeye Killifish when it is spawning, so other tankmate species are not recommended if breeding is desired. While many killifish are kept in pairs, the Norman’s Lampeye Killifish seems to thrive and show the best coloration in groups. It will feel most secure when kept in groups of 6 or more. It is safe with adult dwarf shrimp, but like most fish, it may eat some shrimp fry.
