African Spotted Leaf Fish?

I'm just curious as to what they're like and how aggressive they can be. Has anyone owned them? I absolutely LOVE their look but i'd like to know if anyone's had aggression issues with them in the past.

They aren't really aggressive, but are both carnivorous and piscivourous, so can't be kept with small fish. They really do best in a species tank. The need very soft, acidic water to survive for very long. Very cool fish, but difficult to keep.
