||They like hard water, drift wood and plants to blend in with. These are African river fish.
||So far, no luck in captive breeding.
||These are very peaceful fish. they will come out of hiding
when I approach the tank to feed them. They appear to be
slow moving fish, but, can swim fast. They are similar to
a leaf fish in that they will sit in the water motionless
and wait for their food to swim by. Nocturnal by nature,
but, will come out during the day too. I bought five of
them when they were only about an inch and a half long.
This was about a year and a half ago. They are now 4 inches
long and doing very well. They are supposed to be jumpers,
so, keep all openings at the top of the tank sealed. As I
said, I have had them for sometime now and have not had any
problems with these fish. Very beautiful coloration. Brown
and black (like a leopard).
