Forest fish

Temporary pools in the rainforest are the ideal beginnings for a unique species of fish. Killifish can not only develop in small temporary pools of water, they can travel across land to escape predators and find new water systems. The males attract females with bright colours that show up against the dark forest floor. Spawning produces the next generation, but not until the next rains. Until then, the eggs lie dormant.
