"We've had our leporinus for ten years. He has actually became a part of our family and it was so sad to seem him go last night. He wasn't sick or anything, I guess it was just his time to go. Such an amazing fish. I find it quite weird that some websites have said that these fish are social beause he has eaten everything we have put in the tank...mickeys, gouramis, barbs, tetras, deones, neons, oscars, discus, plecos and god knows what else. Ever since we got a pleco that has been bigger then him, he hasn't eaten it but used to nip it every once and a while. He used to eat all our other plecos like they were going out of style. What a joy to have him, he was an incredible fish. We were looking around to find another one today since we re-did our tank after he left us...and couldn't find one like him as a baby. We got a spotted one but he seems to act lke a head stander,so we think he either hasn' fully mastered swimming with a filter or the guy who said at the fish store that he was a leporinus was lying because we didn't think they were to begin with. They were with other head standers so who knows. But I'm trying to keep my eye out for the banded ones, I miss seeing him in my tank. If you got one, you have such a great fish. I love him...he's a little devil but the best fish to have."
