    Red (blood?) on bichir

    I noticed recently on my delhezi bichir that he has red marks on his underside. The almost look like cuts. He is housed with 3 other bichirs and 2 catfish. Is this something to stress over or will it heal over time?

    Delhezi Thickness?

    So I can find plenty of sources on how big a Delhezi Bichir will grown LONG. But I’m trying to build hides into their final tank that will be less than adjustable/moveable. I know these boys can hit around 14-18” long, I’m curious as to what diameter of PVC pipe won’t squish them in their adult...

    Did I Overfeed My Bichir?

    I have a juvenile Senegal Bichir (about 4in) that I have had less than a month. I have him in a 45gal tank with a Delhezi bichir of the same size. I was having trouble getting my Del to eat, and my Sen would end up eating his food AND half of hers. Now his back half is floating up awkwardly and...

    Delhezi size compatibility question

    I'm going to be moving some fish to their semi-permanent home soon(it's a massive 300 gallon tote, huge score at $200, while I save up for an actual tank which is why it's semi) and want to have all intended inhabitants quarantined and good to go so I can add them all at once and not have to...

    My favorite weirdos (bichir tank video)

    Hey all! I'm about to switch this tank over to a sand substrate (finally), and then the whole gang's moving into a 120g later in the spring. So this is sort of the last hurrah for this particular setup, which has been running more or less interrupted for the last decade. The tank's a mess, but...

    Being accustomed to thuds suck

    So last night I heard a thud, which I'm used to hearing between the black wolf and odoe in the bigger tank, I didn't think anything of it but woke up to a dead del, everyone else is fine, he's not in a tank with anything aggressive, just did a water change. That's my only guess. Was a full 9"

    Brown colored Delhezi vs Grey colored Delhezi

    I used to have a Delhezi that was pretty brown in color compared to some of the grey colored ones I see on youtube. Now I have Delhezis which seem like they are in between those colors. Does anyone perhaps know anything about captive bred or wild caught or different regions they come from or a mix?

    Delhezi bichir has more "spine finlets" and are closer to head?

    Does anyone notice this and know if its a species or random individual characteristic? For example, the palmas bichir seems to have less spine finlets than the delhezi, and is not as close to the head as the delhezi from google images. As in, there is more space from the skull to the first spine...

    20 gallon grow out tank?

    I have 2 delhezi bichirs at 4 inches. Do you think the 20 gallon is too small? I was told a 40 breeder would be better. The size of food they can eat is literally crumb size and I was thinking it would be hard for them to find them in a 40 breeder. I am trying to get a 40 for when they grow...
