Hi, Are there any community suitable fish that are similar to leopard bush whereby they hang out within plants & shrubs?

I've never heard of it either so I had a bit of a search and found it here. From what I can work out, it's basically the "big daddy" of the Gourami world :wink:

Sorry about that, I made a fatal error in assuming people would know what I was banging on about.

I saw them in my local Pets at Home store, was got curious about a new type of fish in my tank, that lives in the shrubs.

Cool looking fish! never seen or heard of it before. As said before, looks like its from the gourami species. Why not look at other gourami variations? There are some great colours and most a suitable for community aquariums. (depending on tank mates of course!) :wink:
