Scientific name：Nothobranchius korthausae
Description: A commonly seen notho that is an ideal introduction to the genus. Easy to keep, feed and breed. Both red and yellow strains exist, along with a number of intermediaries, both aquarium mixes, and natural populations. This is a peaceful fish, that can be easily raised in a group. Like all notho species, they do prefer livefoods.
Scientific name：Nothobranchius guentheri
Description: REGION: The island of Zanzibar, Tanzania. Of special note, N. guentheri has been introduced into several other areas of the world for mosquito control. There are no reports of long-term survival.
NOTES: Without a doubt, this is one of the best species for a new Notho enthusiast to attempt. N. guentheri is easily bred, the fry are large enough to take newly hatched brine shrimp immediately and grow relatively fast. The males can be sexually aggressive and it is wise to maintain the sexes separately. It is common to see males sparring with each other and they are best kept in large groups so the dominant males do not drive the smaller ones to death.

11:Should we just leave the fish bag in the water for 10-15 days and let the fish swim out batch by batch?
No. You should keep fish bag in a moist environment but not totally wet. So you should always put this back into the reseal-able plastic bag provided and seal it tightly each time.
12:Should we pump oxygen into the water?
Not necessary. You can keep tap water for one day or under the sun for about 2 hours before usage. What you should do is change the water frequently to keep the water clean and there'll be ample oxygen. Please note each time you only change about one third of the water. Otherwise, the fish might not adapt to the totally new environment.
13:Is there any special requirement for the fish's environment?
Water Temperature only. The storage temperature is 15-35°C and the best temperature range for hatching is 18-30°C. Please do take note that the temperature we refer to is the water temperature, not your room temperature.

You can purchase this from us or your local aquarium store.
16:Can we keep adult fish and baby fish together?
If there's big difference in size between the fishes, adult fish will bite or even eat baby fish when it is hungry.
17:How often should we feed baby fish?
The baby fish is very smart and it won't die from eating too much. You can feed it only once a day. Baby fish won't eat any more if it is full. It is OK if there are some brine shrimp left in the breeding vessel.

It is one gram every flat spoon. You should put in just one flat spoon of salt into the little plastic vessel provided in the package. Please note that brine shrimp can only be hatched by salt water and the hatching time takes 24-72 hours.
19:How long can the brine shrimp provided last?
The appetite of baby fish is small, so you just need to hatch a small "pinch" of brine shrimp each time. The brine shrimp supplied is enough for baby fish to grow up to approximately 2 cm long. When the fish reaches this size, you can start using other fish food to feed it, for example frozen petrified worms or brine shrimp. Just do not feed it with dry commercial fish pellets.
20.How long can brine shrimp live? Will it grow up?
Brine shrimp can live for 2 or 3 days. It will also grow up if you feed it with flour. However, you don't need to breed brine shrimp as what we supply is enough for baby fish grows up to 2 cm long.
21:Can we keep adult Magic fish along with other ornamental fishes?
You can do this so long as there's no huge difference in size.

23:What is the black material in the fish bag? Will it deteriorate?
The black material in the fish bag is called coco substrate. It is the carrier of Magic fish embryos and has been sterilized. It is safe and is a type of culture medium for flowers and grass. It won't deteriorate.
24:How many species of Magic fish in one bag?
Currently, there's only one species per bag.
