I have seen the coolest fish. Its an african spotted leaf fish. The only thing that I know about them is they get 4 and 1/2 inches. Does anyone know more about them? This would be very helpful. I want to get two. The other fish are blood parrots, a red tail shark and catfish. The tank is a 125 gallon.

The African spotted leaf fish would probably do better in an aqaurium by themselves.
They also require live food. This can get expensive.
As for tank settings, they prefer heavily planted tanks with very little water movement.

Mine killed everything else in the tank. I brought him to a LFS that will adopt him out. He was pretty & had a ton of personality, but cost me 30 bucks worth of other fish.

I wanted to get one as well, but I decided not to when people told me how aggressive they are. If you have a whole tank to dedicate to just them, then you may want to try it. I would say a pair would be comfy in a 29 gallon.
