What is their max size?
Water temps required?
Their max size is 4-6 inches, their temp is in the range of 75-82 and I believe the only thing to fear losing would be snails as they love to eat snails. I believe they also eat fish under an inch long, so any Fry are byebye. They'll eat about any fish food you have to offer, and will likely clean the bottom of the tank, if you use sinking pellets, until there's nothing left. They also eat veggies such as peas, cuce, zucchini, blanched kale, ect. Bloodworms and brine shrimp. About anything that can be eaten will be eaten.
Oh also they like pristine water conditions, and sand is a recommended substrate or else they may rub their skin raw on the gravel. And it's good to have a group of at least 4 I believe
I've been told they can also be slightly aggressive, as many loaches are, so a bigger group is better and no very small fish.
Do you know about the African Leaf Fish?
Which African leaf fish are you referring to?
They get rather large and are predators. I can't remember exact details but I knew I'd be kissing my Rasbora goodbye, haha.
I believe they grow to 6 inches
