It’s not like a “KOI” fish, not needed a big pond and bunch of foods and cost… And also they are yet more beautiful than “Goldfish”….
YES, that is “Japanese Killifish”, they are called “Medaka” in Japanese and have always been extremely familiar fish to Japanese people for many many years.
Their eyes are positioned slightly higher above on their faces in comparison to other fish, and easy watching out for something falling into water surface.
They are often mistaken as a “Western Mosquito Fish”, but they are completely different kind. Japanese Killifish are not so much carnivorous than Mosquitofish and specifically can endure lower temperature.
Originally they are living in east asia including Japan region, but now they are amazingly under a wonderful evolution. Their body colors and shapes are increased the number and the combination would seems to be over 300 types.

Please give me 3 minites more… Here’s a quick look at just a few of the Japanese killifish character and the secret I share with you;
My first a wonderful encounter with Japanese killifish were in summer of 2004. When My elder daughter saw a small orange colored “Himedaka” selling with a sad air in a pet store, she start begging.
“Dad, I wanna buy this and saving his life.” “ I will take care of him during this summer holiday “
So we decided to buy that small fish. To save his life from this inferior pet store’s water tank and give him happiness, that was our wishes. But ….
With sawing sadly crying my daughter, I decided to learn more deeply about Best rearing a Japanese killifish.
From that time, I am becoming a crazy for this rather than my daughter, and now am living with many kind of Japanese killifish and enjoying all types of rearing, from biotope at outside verandah to indoor aquarium put in some aquatic plants and decorative stones etc.
2) Adept at swimming Japanese Killifish are very skilled swimmers. You see them swimming gracefully one minute, then they make a full stop the next minute, and then they turn around quickly. The agile movements seem to have a correlation with the brilliant fins of these Japanese Killifish. They have a total of seven fins: tailfins that help them to swim forward, back fins and bottom fins that support them to stay straight, and two of each fin that are on their stomachs and their chest.
3) Resilient against the change in water temperature Japanese Killifish are fish that have survived through the grand nature of Japan. Remarkably, they can endure through the four different seasons, one example of this is their ability to hibernate at the bottom of waterways and wait until spring in extremely cold winters where they can’t even swim.
4) They live just under the surface The common of Japanese Killifish are their big googly eyes. Because their eyes are positioned slightly higher above on their faces in comparison to other fish, they are named ‘Medaka’ which means ‘high eyes’ in Japanese. These Japanese Killifish have very good eyesight and have wide-angle vision, so they see everything that reflects on the surface of the water. Their mouths are also positioned upward like their eyes. This is so that they can find and catch their food easily. Therefore, food in small pieces that float on water would be appropriate as their food.
There are many ways to raise Japanese Killifish apart from raising them in water tanks. Evidently, the most popular way is to raise them in a water tank, but there are many other ways to raise them as Japanese Killifish have quite strong vitality; you can for example raise them in an empty bottle, or in a water lily bowl or a plastic bowl in your garden or on your verandah.
