I just added two of these to my community tank today! I can't find much info on them on the internet.. and my LFS said they are pretty rare (hence why they cost a bit more). Does anyone else have these? The photos of them I did find on the net don't do them justice, my two are MUCH nicer lol. They are also called Epiplatys dageti dageti

LOL yup I did visit those links already. Thanks for going and finding them for me though! I appreciate that!

Hm well it seems the red-chin panchax is not common at all LOL. That's why I thought I'd grab em when I saw them, cos I'd never seen them in any LFS before!!

I'll take some pics of them and put em up. They are definate top-dwellers.. they hover and swim a bit lower but spend a lot of time almost at surface, swimming around together.

They look good, be careful though, if they are anything like the golden wonder killies(which they have the same shape) you could have some disaperances happen.

They are popular beginner Epiplatys among the killifish people. That being said. I have never kept them. I'd treat them as you would smaller versions of golden wonders. They are also easily bred.

That being said, they are a rare find at a local store. Congrats! I would have been very tempted also.
