Golden Wonder Panchax Appearance

This surface-dwelling killifish is a color variation of the striped panchax. Juveniles and females often display the vertical bars nature gave them, but the males come in a wide variety of golden, green, and yellow hues of which the Golden Wonder is the most commonly available.

Nature of Fish

In nature, they are predators, eating insects, insect larvae, small fish and tadpoles. In the aquarium, although happy to eat flake foods, they will also eat neon tetras and zebra danios so are careful with the fish you put them with. They can live in a 20 gallon/ 75-liter tank, and unlike most killis, they are very adaptable when it comes to water inhabiting both fresh and brackish waters. They are hardy enough to be considered a fish for beginners, but it is best to have only one male in an aquarium or fights will occur.
