Spotting Climbing Perch

I had heard great things about the Leopard Bush Fish/Spotting Climbing Perch long before I purchased it, and was not disappointed when I brought it home. It was shy at first, but after a couple of weeks this nocturnal fish began to venture out more and more often during daylight hours.

The Bush Fish is fascinating to watch as it stalks it's prey. When given live food, it assumes position above it's prey, and adopts the appearance of a leaf floating in the water by hanging motionless and curving it's tail to one side. When it strikes it sucks the unsuspecting creature whole into it's maw.

With other fish it is very peaceful, unless of course the fish is small enough to be considered food. It is likely to become a victim to larger, more energetic fish. My Leopard Bush Fish endures mild bullying from it's tankmate: a Featherfin Syndontis.
