The Least Killifish is an extremely peaceful fish that is native to the southeastern United States. This peaceful species is the smallest known livebearing fish, and one of the smallest fish species in the WORLD. In addition to being an excellent display fish in the community and planted aquarium, the omnivorous Least Killifish is also an effective algae eater. In an outdoor pond, it is very useful for algae control as well as for eating insect larvae.
