Hi Larry,

Thnx for the great info. All info I could find said that Leporinus Fasciatus will be max 30cm long. I actually wanted to try to get my hands on some Leporinus sp Atabapo, described here by Heiko:
http://www.practicalfishkeeping.co.uk/c ... p?sid=3951

Heiko says in this link that they will make good tankmates for Pt. Altum, but if I understand you right these fish are also bad fin nippers and therefore a bad idea??? I have no experience with these fish. They seem very nice, but indeed, I want to go for the long term view with this Altum tank.

I will be picking up the Altums tomorrow!

You are correct. I have seen 12 inch(30 cm) Leporinus fasciatus.
I made a mistake when I wrote 60 cm.
I saw these large specimens in a big aquarium at a Chinese restaurant in Seattle, WA which was stocked with other large fish like big Pacus.
