Leaf fish (south american)

I just recently bought two of these fish. They are really neat. I was wondering if anyone else has any and what they might be eating them. Right now they are eating my guppies but I'm going out to buy some ghost shrimp today.

Are they Leopard Ctenopoma? They will eat almost any meaty fish food and pellets.

South American leaf fish are not Ctenopoma and as far as I know they only eat live food. I'd use ghost shrimp and guppies. You can breed some cheap non feeder guppies and use the fry as food.
