Does this count? He’s a 7.25 inch platinum senegal bichir I picked up recently.
The tank is 18 inches wide if it helps you picture his true length better.

Mine are not too big, a large part of their life with me was during a severe drought so they didn't get all the food and waterchanges they deserved :(

Very cool pics everyone, how big are these guys expected to get in the Aquarium? I’ve heard 12 inches and up?

As far as I know the 12 inchers are wild caught, captive bred ones tend to get 8-10 inches if given time.
Ever heard of lake turkana? The senegal bichirs there get to 18 inches I think it was. Something about that lake is different than other places.
