CB delhezi tend to be lighter and have zig zap patterns. Wc delhezi are normally darker and have tiger stripes like weeksii.

probably still acclimating. Most fish when introduced(especially after shipping) will be lighter than usual for a few days. Is the lighter delhezi accepting food?

Does anyone know if Bichirs get more vibrant coloration once they reach adulthood?

It is accepting food, more as days pass by. It got a little darker !
