Nandus nandus (Gangetic Leaf Fish)
Laterally compressed, leaf-like fish with a mottled coloration and a large mouth. These fish are stealth predators and tend to hunt at dusk and dawn.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A stealth predator that cannot be kept with smaller species. Wild fish feed extensively on insect larvae and small fish; in captivity will take invertebrates including river shrimps and earthworms. Not easily weaned onto dead foods, though these may be taken if wiggled enticingly with forceps. Usually shows no interest in dried foods at all.
Not fussy about water chemistry. The addition of a little marine salt mix (2-3 grammes per litre) is useful but not essential.
Territorial towards its own kind, but otherwise peaceful. Breeds only rarely in aquaria. An egg scatterer, providing no broodcare at all. Fry hatch after two days and need small live foods.
