Flying fox and least killifish?

I was at petco tonight and I was looking at some fish and I came upon the flying fox and I fell in love! They remind me somewhat of ottos and I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with them and what they are like and what size tank they should be in? Also does anyone have any least killifish? I am just tryin to find out as much as I can about both of these! Thank you!

Flying foxes can turn mean.

I have least killis. They stay small, breed live like guppies, eat anything and aren't particular on pH, just keep the water clean, give them live plants and good food, they'll do great.

Ok I had never heard of the flying foxes so I wasnt too sure. But I found some least killifish on a few websites for pretty cheap and shipping was really cheap and I really liked them and have been reading a good bit about them I just wanted some first hand experience so thank you very much!!

I have a flying fox in my 30gal and he thinks he owns the whole tank! He is my favorite fish though, but he can be mean at times

They are a community fish so they do well with others. They just show dominance, they won't harm your other fish

Is it a flying fox or a Siamese flying fox? There is a big difference between them. First is very aggressive and second is very peaceful. I have a siamese and he is great.

That's what I was thinking ^^^

This will help identify them.
I have 4 Siamese flying foxes together and they are very peaceful.
