    Feeding frozen fish

    Here in the UK I’m having a hard time finding tilapia fillets. I can buy whole black tilapia in a local oriental supermarket but it’s not ideal. However whilst I was there I saw a few different species that people will recognise. My question is do people prefer to feed freshwater species of...

    Help ID please! Polypterus dabola?

From what I have read, this is very likely not an actual dabola. What type of bichir do you think this is? I'm...
