    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?

    the original 5 are 3 clown loaches, the pics i take of them never look right and my redtail black shark and my common pleck all were bought at the same time aswell

    its 90 gallon dunno what that is in litres

    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?

    why thanks angelmouse, had eggs again now a few more times but they dont last more than 20 seconds

    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.

    kinow why they do the head standing thing exactly. I was talking about completely upside down horizontly. Mine does that all the time to feed from rocks. Its quite bizzare. Sorry for derailin the thread btw.
