    Look after your fish and the water, do regular water changes & maintenance, do your research and the hobby will be rewarding.
    All the best

    Man, case closed haha! Thanks all and DD! I was actually bought it as a gift and the lfs sold it as a leopard to my unknowing cousin. Clearly isn't a leopard though and has drove me nuts! Thanks again
