first of all, sorry if this is the incorrect section. with what i have found online this seemed to be where they fit in.
i have had my eyes on a Ctenopoma acutirostre (leopard bush fish, spotted bush fish, African spotted gourami, Spotted Climbing Perch, etc.) but i wanted to make sure i completed my research completely before commiting to one.
first of all, i noticed the label at the pet store said to add salt to the tank (not a saltwater tank), but from everything i have read online they are said to be straight freshwater fish. can anybody spread any light on this?
secondly i have a 55gallon tank currently without any fish. these will be the first added fish to the tank. i understand they will eat smaller fish if given the chance, so i know to avoid that (as far as owning fish, not including feeders). how many of these would you recomend keeping in the same tank? i know they are territorial and require hiding spots, which they will have. i would like two, but could make due with one more/less if needed.
also, kind of part of the last situation: i hear if they are kept together at a young age they will hunt in a pack, anyone know whether this is true?
i think those were the only concerns i had, if i think of more i will post them.
