I'm thinking of keeping a pair of killies in my 10 gallon planted tank, And I've been reading conflicting opinions on using heaters. Any of you experienced killfish keepers have some advice?

In Oregon you need a heater.

Killi entusiasts don't use heaters as they often have a dedicated, heated fish room.

No need to bring up a post that is almost a year old.

Plus, what is a Golden Wander? Sounds like daffy duck saying it Golden Wonder....

What is a golden wonder killi ? Why are you on this forum ?

Aplocheilus lineatus ..Is that correct ?

These fish can survive in has high as 90 degrees ..or as low as 40 and lower .Very hardy and fun fish .Mine will swim into my hand to feed on live insects shrimp or worms ! They seem to be also quite intelligent as fish go LOL ..

Bet they don't care if their name is misspelled LOL
