The Golden Panchax is an excellent surface dwelling fish for peaceful communities. The fish has a unique appearance thanks to its reflective scales, shape, and unusual mouth which appears to 'grin'. These are natural surface dwellers and will rarely swim down, so surface foods are important, as well as cover such as floating plants, tall plants, or decor at the surface. An interesting feature of this fish is a large reflective scale on the top of the head, which is used in the wild to attract insects for food. Golden panchax's are robust and adaptable and will do well in a suitable aquarium environment.
