I just got one of these and I love him! He has so much personality- he's always out and about. When I clean the tank he actually swims right over to me and tries to suck on my hand! It kinda freaks me out, but is still very entertaining.

I haven't found much info about them, except that they eat both meat & veggies and are subtropical. Anyone have anything else to share?

Yeah, I saw that one. I pretty much read the first 5 pages of google, hehe.

I still can't get over the sucking on my hand thing! I've never had a sucker fish try something like that. Most of them are pretty shy.
