Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      you wont find one 3-5 inches. You will find 10-12 and have to most likely order from toyin. He gets most of the rare bichirs. They get very large. I have 2 right now at 15 and 16 inches. I heard they get the thickest of all bichirs but my endlis are super fat and 16 17 inches so almost the same size. They are very mild tempered as most bichirs. They get nice saddle stripes on the body and nice markings on the top of the head. You will probably run you $100 for the 10 to 12 inch one. Good luck in your search if you find a small one you will be very lucky. hope i helped

      Congicus are far from rare!

      I think it is easy to find/order one from pretty much anywhere in the world now!

      Thanks for the infos my local fish guy had some 3" endlicheri in I didn't
      Get it at that time now I regret it. He's on the look for them now but the congicus
      Will be harder to find.

      A few months ago, the LFS that I work at got some 4" Congicus in. Not sure of the supplier, but I'll see if I can find out.

      Congicus are still somewhat rare around here even though toyin is local. I have a 14 to 15 inch female and she is by far the most active of my bichirs but is the least greedy eater
