anyone know anything or has experience with african spotted bush/leaf fish?

I seen one at petsmart AMD fell involve with it but I'm very confused about them. I've read there are two different types of fish and one is smaller than the other and that's the one I seen and are commonly sold in petsmart. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

They need frozen food and live food. If I remember right they are not beginer fish so if you are expeirnced they are for you.

Yeah. I've read they really like guppy/fry and blood worms.
And I'm also confused about.the experience level.
Some profiles say they are hardy, easy to care for and some what you've said.

You could ask the people on the TFK side of the forum. I'm pretty sure at least one person over there has experience with them

Lol I can't figure it out either -.-


But I just did a water change and switch the decor up a bit. (Don't worry everything was thoroughly scrubbed with hot water and a toothbrush c:)
And I really need to add more plants. I plan on getting a lot more aponogeton and I want like two or three jungle Val and another sword.

I was going to post a picture biut my internet connection is being pretty lame :/



Oh and what I meant by everything being scrubbed and soaked, I bring my dogs by these vacant railroad tracks and founds a nice piece of pipe and I soaked it all day after scrubbing all of the dirt off because it was pretty much buried.
And added another glass vase and fake driftwood.
I searched everywhere for a nice cool piece with roots but had no luck but the one I have would make a good moss tree C:
