    Howdy all, I recently set up my 55 gallon planted aquarium and wanted to stock it. I originally wanted a school of black emperor tetras, but then I stumbled upon the leopard bush fish. I would love to put one of them in my tank(I couldn't put them together right?) and also if are there any tankmates that would work with them, and/or algae eaters? And also if I got both fish at around 1" would the leopard grow up with them? Thanks!

    Leopard bush fish, species Ctenopoma acutirostre, is not a general community fish but needs some special conditions. You can read more here:

    As for algae eaters...most so-called fish either do not eat algae or have very specialized algae diets. I'm not certain just what you are asking with this.
