Spotted African Leaf Fish are carnivorous and eat aquatic crustaceans, worms, insect larvae and small fish, instead of plants. They will hide most of the time and need plenty of cover areas such as hardy plants and bogwood. They are generally peaceful with fish of the same size and temperament, but may eat fish that are small enough to fit into their mouths. To create a beautiful environment, be sure to add some top swimmers as well. Ask a PetSmart associate to help you choose.
