Hi my name is Kris but everone calls me Tyny and I live in Arkansas. I have been wanting to get back in to fish seen I moved to Arkansas. So I have been looking around for Killies but I have not had Killies. So any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Well, it looks like you are the only one in Arkansas, so you will have fewer options obtaining fish. Your best option may be ordering fish through the mail. Since you are in the AKA, you should have gotten a BNL this month. At the end is a section of fish listed for sale. You can find some great beginner fish at very reasonable prices there. As strange as it may seem, getting fish in the mail is pretty reliable. I actually sent some to Arkansas last Nov. from Michigan, and they made it just fine.
You may be able to find some killies at a general aquarium club, but I don't know if you have a club near you.
The last option I can think of is packing up the car and heading to Dallas this July. They will be having a killifish show at which many fish will be on display with many additional fish for sale. Be forewarned, going to a show will multilply the "I have to have that one, and that one, and that one" factor.
Have a look at the BNL and good luck!

Don't know how close you are to St. Louis. The Missouri Aquarium Society is having a show and auction this weekend, There will be members of the St Louis Killie Association there. See http://www.inkmkr.com/Fish/
Rats! You are about 7 hours from St Louis!
See also the discussion with snakemau further down the page.
There are a couple of killie keepers spread out widely across your state, though sort of in a radius at some distance from Little Rock.
How close are you to Wynne, Horseshoe or Clinton? :)
