In the volcano on Waponi Wu, I encountered two Lava Fish on the bridge. I defeated them and opened their two chests and got ZIP. NADA. BUPKIS - no gold at all. And they were gold fish, too.

Apparently they digested the gold and melted it into their scales? XD It's not too dissimilar from the situation at the top of the volcano, either ;)

It is a small chance to get chests from them at the end of battle, if you do you get something around 14 gold.

Lava Fish are sooooooooo very much like sheapskates, I did Waponi Wu with a four man team and beat all those lava fish and not one chest appeared! Wasted eforts.

I was able to solo Waponi Wu. I'm a witchdoctor and my first mate was Milo Graytail.

They may be cheap, but their animation when you crit on them is hilarious.

It seems the high level you get, the less the battles drop. Even bosses often drop nothing. Just the nature of the game.

You are correct. They are quite strong enemies, and not one golden coin did I find.

Don't say these pessimistic things , you will see... just an example: Friar Sand in Moshuu can drop every time you beat him (take 5 minutes) around the same amount of gold you get from captain Gunn treasure , not mentioning the epic gear too.

Lava fishes are just on the passage, stomp on them and pass over .

The problem, I think, is that treasure chests appear where the enemy died. In that particular fight, there is a lot of open air where the fish can go but you cannot. So if you kill them out there and not on the bridge you won't get any treasure.
