Yeah their name is Anistonus anistonus I think, they have lots of common names like Headstander and Striped anistonus. They are meant to be really aggressive, I have caught mine chasing my Green Terror, but not very often. They are meant to strip the scales from slow moving fish, I was surprised it would be ok with Discus, although does their mucus thing mean they are scale-less?

strip the scales ill look in to that as that dont sound good. had the headstander about 3 months now not noticed any thing mean with him, dont you think they have weird mouths?

Haha, yeah their mouth is funny looking. It looks to me like it has evolved to graze algae or some sort from the underneath of rocks from their natural habitats.

As for the scale stripping, I have seen it try it with the Severum in mine, which is why I brought up the Discus, being similar in shape and how they move. It wasn't anything extreme just a couple of little niggles. I would just keep an eye on him incase, sure you dont want anything nasty happening to the Discuss. I think the funniest part is when they graze upside down off bogwood or slate, looks really funny.
