Ohh those guys are neat... make sure you keep a lid on the aquarium, they most certainly will jump :)

Lucky you; I haven't been able to get these locally for a couple decades.

We have a video in our profile of one of the "splash" species that may be of interest, confirming what ladayen said about their jumping. Profiles are under the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page, or click on the shaded name in posts, example Splashing Tetra or Copella arnoldi.

Yes I saw the video while standing at the LFS watching them as I was googling them , LOL ! The video is amazing , great camera and " trick photography " .. I wouldnt mind having that on DVD ... The same LFS has seven left so I'm really REALLY tempted going back and buying them out .... yes they def. have a glass top and alot of floating anubias ...
