They also have a reputation for being phenomenal jumpers, which I have seen first hand at my local fish store. They were unpacking some leps from a shipment, and as soon as the bag was opened they started shooting into the air. There were fish all over the floor!
I think they are very cool looking fish.
But I think anything that gets a foot long with a reputation for violence might not be the best to keep w/peaceful fish.
