New aquarium opened near me. Visited, Never knew there was a species of polypterus called retropinnis bichir. It looks almost identical to a Senegal bichir?
they had endlicheri bichirs, and they were THE MOST interactive and aggressive bichirs I’ve met. Ive always thought bichirs were calm and peaceful fish, but when i put my hand over the tank, they immediately darted to the surface, smashing the glass lid along the way.
Really hate when fish get mislabeled.
Either ways, I got myself a small Senegal bichir. Never owned one before, hoping to grow it out in the 55g. How big before they start eating community fish? It is only about 4cm
