View Full Version : Gold Panchax ?

04-18-2012, 10:56 AM
I have recently been offered a one-off gold panchax.

Basically... What on earth is this fish? I'm told its a Killifish but these aren't very well known where I'm from. I've never seen one before.

I've looked up a bit about it on the internet but personal experience would be great. I've only been offered one -- do they live happily on their own? How big do they grow? What are some suitable/unsuitable tank mates, etc?

Please and thank you. :)

So is this the Golden Wonder Killi? Couldn't really find the information I wanted in that article, although it was useful.

Mine is pretty aggressive towards anything with a yellow to beige colour. It's nipped my fingers a few times, big mouth for it's body size. Stays at the surface looking for food or relaxing 90% of the time. No preferred area, 50% in the plants 50% in open water. Darts to the bottom to either attack something, or because it thought it saw food. Healthy appetite, not picky at all. This is my experience with them

i recently got two of these guys and they are great! pretty chilled out but they dont take any crap. I have danios who will sometimes try and chases the panchax, sometimes works but other times the panchax turns around and has a go at them.

Good to see another kiwi about here!
