Howdy and Welcome to Fishchannel!
I was passing by Dave's page and saw your interesting post about a Leaf Fish ( I don't think I've ever seen one and, knew it? ), your tank is very very interesting in it's layout. I like it! One other question. since you have Dwarf Gourami's are they male and, female? I just got one for the first time and it's terrorizing my tank! I may have to get rid of it to have peace in my tank again???? He's a beautiful Irridescent Turquoise, with a little Red trim around his fins. Also, how big do they get? Mine is about 1-1/4" long? Let me know? the way, I'm Chris. Take care.

My leaf fish is picky, he's now only eating krill(freeze dried) and is very active. I don't really feed my anemones anything anymore, but if you feel the need to feed yours, just peel some shrimp and tear a small little bit off and place it on a tentacle-it should take it.

Feeding my Leaf Fish
As a response to Who's Nemo, my Leaf Fish eats a lot of stuff. He usually can get some standard fish flakes, spiralina flakes, freeze-dried bloodworms, and occasionally frozen blood worms when I put them in. He usually gets only what the surface feeders miss and spits out food if it isn't meaty. The best thing to feed your Leaf Fish that I know about is bloodworms, frozen or freeze-dried, but I'm sure anything similar to that would be fine. Also, thanks for advice on the anemones. What do you feed the anemone?

The thing about anemones are your have to really keep up with your water parameters. The water chemistry has got to be just right for them to do well. I have killed a few, but now they seem stable and doing good. I'm looking for another hostable anemone for my clownfish. My little green bubble tip anemone is too small for my big Clarkii clown, but he still tries to get in the inside of it. Just try to perfect the normal duties for a saltwater tank and you should be fine, although I would wait a few months before adding an anemone. Small fish can help seed the tank a little faster, but make sure they are reef safe. Good luck and I'm glad to hear your leaf fish is not acting up. By the way, what do you feed him? Let me know, here's a Vote!

Leaf fish!!!
I love my leaf fish (leopard ptenopoma), but it took a lot of fish to die before I found that it is a very aggressive fish! I bought it when it looked like a leaf and was not more than an inch long. Everyday I would come home and there would be one fish missing. He would eat anything he could fit into his mouth! Now, he is more like 4-5 inches long and an inch wide! He started in a 10 gallon tank, but is now housed in a 55 gallon tank with an adult red oscar and an a adult chocolate cichlid that outsize him significantly. So I guess watch your little fish closely as they could start disappearing! Let me know how it goes. Here's a Vote
