I have been wanting to purchase a golden wonder killie for my 40 gallon but I haven't been succesful in finding any information on this species execpt that it grows to 3 inches.
Any additional info would be greatly appreciated.

I kept golden wonder killies for a short time and can tell you some basics about them...

the male is bright yellow with red at the tips of the tails and fins - the female is a darker golden color with less red, but still beautiful. My females got quite a bit larger than the males.
they prefer to hover at the top of the tank or hide amongst live plants
they eat from the top of the tank unless there is live food in the tank, such as daphnia, livebearer fry, etc. They are fabulous at population control.
all three of mine jumped the tank - I have stellar water quality except for the fact that I have hard water and high pH.

For the most part, most killies are jumpers. I would keep a tight lid on any tank that houses killies or keep the water at least a couple of inches lower than the top.
