I found the name of the leaf fish!

The store calls it a Schomburgkis leaf fish. I did a search on it but didn't find anything.

Now that I have the name does anyone know about it?

Sorry, I'd put a picture but I don't have a camera.

Polycentrus schomburgki, the 'other' South American leaf fish. Gets to about 4 inches or so and is a predator like its cousins. It generally requires live food like small fish and aquatic insects. Likes a heavily planted aquarium with not too much circulation.
