The leaf fish is in our profiles, under the common name Leopard Ctenopoma. There is info on foods and feeding, click on the shaded name to see the profile.

What kind of leaf fish? The true leaf fish can be quite difficult to get to eat. How big is he? Try feeder guppies that are small enough for him to eat without a problem. Are the ghost shrimp small enough?

If he is a Leopard Ctenopoma, I find they do better on frozen than live.

They are carnivores. Mine eats just about anything. I feed her shrimp pellets, cichlid pellets, frozen foods, chopped fresh market shrimp, freeze dried plankton, FD Mysis shrimp, she'll even go for flake although she's a bit big to be eating that now. Occasionally I'll get her some ghost shrimp to hunt. If you have any small fish they will get eaten.
