My favorites

Have a pair for 3 years now. Still fun to feed them! (Mine only eat live food)

They are basically just hanging out at a spot on the surface. They do not go down to the middle or bottom of the tank. They will not disturb other fish... they just eat them if 1) they might fit into their mouth and 2) they hang out at the surface.

Do not put them in a tank with fish that will bother them from below (Barbs, curious Cichlids, etc). It's cruel to do that.
