    Default African Leaf Fish?

    Never seen these guys before but they sure do look awesome! They are carnivorous and peaceful, can take warm water... sounds like they might work?

    Not much found searching, and nothing on here, so - thoughts?

    They're definitely interesting looking. They seem to prefer the same water so I'm sure someone out there has tried it.

    Neat fish but would do horrible in a BB Discus tank. Their called leaf fish for a reason. They like lots of vegetation. They barely ever move except for the flash of speed inhaling pray.

    That is good info, pitdogg2. They look so cool. The thought of them swimming with my Discus made my heart beat fast. Good to know why African Leaf Fish and Discus are not a good match for me.

    Thanks pitdogg, I had just scratched the surface on their behavior but yes you are right - maybe in a planted tank - that did NOT have small tetras roaming around hahaha
