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. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      So I've had my bichir since I was 10 (I'm16 now) and I'm sure I'm caring for him very wrong. I got him from oetsmart along with a bunch of other fish and they just handed him/her to me and told me to just feed him bloodworms every other day. And so I did as he/she got bigger, he/she started eating all of the fish in my tank except my silver dollar. My silver dollar has passed and now he's/she's the only one in a bare tank with rocks and disgusting environment that I just can't clean. What's recommended for him/her because I want to keep him/her happy and healthy.

      It's likely a senegalus from petsmart. Will likely get 8-10 inches but will take some years.

      Will take most pellets and other sinking pellets without any problem. Bloodworms are an ok snack but shouldn't be a maintenance food. Will eat fish that can fit in its mouth.

      Make sure the water is clean in a cycled tank. No need specific water conditions needed.

      How big is the tank? Also post in the Jurassic section and there'll be some bichir memebers to help you.

      I believe it's a 55 gallon? I honestly can't remember I was just excited to have the fish and Emmy mom just bought me a tank that was big enough to support all fish. I'm going to try buying a long shallow tank in the feature because I saw on an article that bichirs like shallow water.

      I am keeping 2 bichirs currently so I think I can give you some advice. Do 20-50% water changes weekly and stop feeding blood worms so often. Blood worms are high in protein and will pollute your water. I feed my 2 bichirs Hikari Carnivore pellets. I hope this helps, good luck! :)
