Exclamation Small Oddball Predator

Hi. I'm currently looking for a small oddball predator for a fresh or brackish tank. I will set up the tank just for it. It has to max out under six inches. I would rather have it be a non-schooling species. No puffers! I already have a little figure eight puffer in his own tank that will shred any fish in his tank. I'm thinking about maybe a leaf fish or a mudskipper.

I've already kept them before. They aren't that interesting. I'm thinking more like a ctenopoma or freshwater stonefish.

Freshwater stonefish? Is there such an animal?

Very interesting. I need to know more about this.

I vote for the elusive freshwater stonefish.

No, leporinus get way too large and i have kept them before as well. I had a sixteen inch leporinus for a while before my old black shark turned on him. Plus the fish has to be 6 inches and under. The freshwater stone fish, by the way, is actually a brackish water fish.

I thought about those, I can get them for like a dollar and fifty cents at the pet store because they breed like rabbits there.
