Killifish are "egg-laying toothcarps". They can be found in the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, India and Asia. Many killifish are annuals. They typically only survive for a few months in the wild. There are others that live much longer than this. They have two basic spawning methods in aquariums. One is to spawn into mops and the other is to drive the eggs into peat.
