Assume he is .Would like confirmation becuase I have another smaller and hes mostly yellow .Do their color schemes change as they get larger ?

This one and what I assume is the female kept trying to kill him LOL ..Have since moved this one and a female to my 25 gal .Have definitely noticed mating attempts and guess this is my male .But when I looked on the net for sexing aplocheilus lineatus .A site posted the females have the darker stripes near the tail ?

So no clues anybody ? Have another male golden wonder smaller and he doesn't look anything like this guy .

Hes all yellow .

This guys tail is especially interesting .Very colorful with yellow spots some blue and orange to red at the edges .If its not a GW what could it be ? Hes definitely mating or attempting to with what I assume is a GW female .

Realize pet smart is not the best place to purchase these sorts of fish .But all three are very healthy and I love theme . These are also my first killies .

So what ever it is its staying !

Yep, it appears to be a striped panchax, but closer to the wild form than the golden wonder form that was created in captivity.
