Spotted African Leaf Fish
I Absolutely adore this fish. I got mine not that long ago and put him in my semi aggressive tank, along with my sharks angle fish and gourmais. i feed him ghost shrimp and tropicial fish food and he is fine.

Sturdy and Beautiful
These fish are some of my favorites. Not a true leaf fish, but it's easier to say than Ctenopoma. They can grow up to 6 inches, but I wouldn't expect it to get over 4.
Don't let their sloth fool you. They hide when they hunt. And their mouths get BIG when they suck fish into their mouths. Be careful about who you keep them with. If it fits, it'll be gone sooner or later.

Great fish! They are very peaceful. I have two in my tank now and one I've had for over 2 years. I have same sized fish and some that are a little smaller than the leaf fish. They are definitely one of my favorites!

Very Cool Fish!
Bought these two fish for my 75 gallon about a week ago. They were shy at first, I just left the light off a lot more than I did before and now they swim around in the light. They like hiding in leaves, driftwood etc. so make sure you have plenty of that for them. You also buy them pretty small, mine are 2-3" which is nice. I feed mine freeze-dried blood worms, they love them! They even come to the top of the tank now. When I first fed them I help the blood worms under water a little so they'd sink to the bottom faster. So far I've had no problems with these fish. They can hold their own against my red-tailed shark, and my 3 spot gourami even though they are half the size. Great fish, great price. Highly recommended. :)
