I've kept golden wider killis in community tanks. As was mentioned, they devour guppies and other fish that act like prey. I've never had them eat anything else, including baby cherry barbs. They made great tank mates, in tanks as small as 20 gallons on up to 125.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
