Yeah I got him when he was tiny, like the size of a quarter. My tiger barbs sometimes chase him, and normally turns around and chases them back.

I have had a few of my tiger barbs lose their tails, I thought it was the bigger tiger barbs picking on each other since I never see the African leaf fish chase any one.

I'll keep and eye on him.
He's super cool, sometimes he yawns his mouth is huge, I've feed him crickets before.

Welcome back! Your tanks look great, they make me want my old 20g FW back! (I put a 29g BioCube in it's place which I love, but I wish I kept both). It didn't work at the moment to keep both, but I plan on getting another FW someday.

Oh, and I just love that Honey Gourami, beautiful colors and very cute!

I'm curious, having different types of FW fish, do you modify your water in anyway (changing hardness, pH, etc.) for the different tanks? I always was curious about that when I had FW, as some people said most fish are fine in dechlorinated tap water, while other recommend you tailor the water to the specific fishes' needs.

I have always just used my tap water that I treat with conditioner. I've heard that once you start changing pH, hardness, etc... It becomes a continuous thing and can become a pain and you can hurt your fish more than help. It's not normally the actually parameter that harms your fish, but the change in parameters too fast.
And I don't trust a lot of those products.

I love Seachem's Prime and stability. As well as API's Stress Coat.

The only thing that I have started to do differently between the tanks, is that I'm using RO water with my 15g, it's slightly softer than my tap water, the Rams live much longer in softer water.

And the salt water tank can only have RO water.
