Leaf fish compatibility

Hi, I have a leaf fish Ctenopoma acutirostre and was wondering what type of other fish would be good tank mates in a 60 gal

I have mine in a 55 gallon with Congo tetras and a pair of Pearl gouramis. They do fine together.

Oh, and welcome to the forum.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

The biggest things are to avoid fish that will fit in their (very large) mouths. You'd also want to avoid the more rowdy cichlids and anabantids with a reputation for being territorial/aggressive.

Thanks for the advice.
I am still trying to decide between species tank and mixed.
