First off, welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

We have fish profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page. You will find this species under the Anabantids, with the name Leopard Ctenopoma. You can click on the shaded name to see the profile, the info there should help you.

One of our members, jeaninel, has this fish, so if she sees this thread she will be able to answer further questions.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I have Congo tetra, Angelfish and a BN pleco in with mine with no issues. Avoid small fish such as neons, rummynose, guppies, etc as they will get eaten. Also avoid hyper tankmates since Ctenopomas are rather shy and don't like too much activity. Good luck!

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
55 Gallon - Polleni Tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - QT
75 Gallon coming soon!
