Golden Wonders can reach 4-5" and while I don't think they would be able to eat full grown Otos, I would not keep them in a 15g tank. That's a little too small for them IMO.

argh conflicting information :(!

another forum told me that a pair of GW killies in a 15 would be okay, as they are top dwellers and do well in small tanks :\

I had a few "golden-eared" killies in a 55. I thought they were mean, chasing everything and swimming quickly. One killed the other and then jumped out. I would say too big for a 15. Can you get a scientific name? Your conflicting opinions may be about different fish sharing a common name.

I agree with JustOneMore20. Aplocheilus lineatus get too big for a 15 gallon IMO and with 5 otos, you would be a little overstocked. Like emc7 said, I have also heard stories of them being a bit aggressive to tankmates.

I just turned on the light to my fish tank this morning and my killifish had half an Otto cat hanging out of his mouth. So yeah, they definitely eat them lol. I had no clue that they did that so I was a bit shocked.
