African Butterfly Fish

I have dealt with butterfly fish a lot in my time working in pet stores. They tend to be a pretty hardy fish. Our water was always close to neutral pH, but you might want to research that a little.

He was very right though when he said they are a mini arowana. ANYTHING that they can fit in their mouth will go in it, so definitely don't keep with anything too small. Also don't keep with fin nippers though as they are very tempting.

I've been really close to getting one a number of times. I want one for my indoor 30gal pond but afraid it could make the 3-4in jump up and out. 

My understanding is they are strictly surface feeders and don't do a lot of swimming around. I too would like to heard someone with first hand experience.
