Question by D’oh: Calling all killifish owners/researchers! (10 pts)?
I have a 5g tank that I want to use for a science fair project proving fish don’t have a “three second memory”. I asked this question before, but the only option I really got was a betta, but I don’t really want one. Can killifish be intelligent/personable enough to learn? More importantly, can one golden wonder killifish live alone in a 5 gallon tank?
It has an adequate filtration system and a light but non heater… I’ll make sure it’s in a warm place though…

Interesting. Well my Killie did ok in a ten gallon with some tank mates so i think it would be fine as they dont get very big. As to the intelligence of them i do know this when i feed my fish the killie is the first to come over to the side of the tank as tho it expects food (second is my clown loach) they ignore everyone else in the house and only follow me around so i am inclined to think they remember i feed them. good luck sounds like a fun experiment
