"I've had my 10" leporinus for about 2 years now, and never had any problems with them. One is very bright on the top, possibly a male, and the other has more of a darker shade to it, hopefully a female. I haven't seen any spawning of any sort, just the usual quarraling. They are housed in a 75 with Dwarf Gourami's, Colombian Sharks, and a stingray, as well as, a 14" pleco. Never had a problem with them attacking anything. Although, they don't like the stingray too much. If you have a large tank I would recommend buying a few, although they do get quite big. There black and yellow bands are really colorful and make them stand out in aquaria. Although, they eat all the plants in the tank, they are very clever and show an acute understanding of eachother. When I drop in an algae wafer, the smaller of the two, is observed bringing the wafer to the larger one. While "he or she" is eating, the presenter is allowed to share the territory. It is quite and interesting behavoir. Tommy "
