I have had a Senegal and a “gold dust” bichir for about a year now and they are still pretty small. The Senegal has grown from a little baby to about 5” or so, and he out grown the gold dust in circumference and length even though the gold one was bigger originally when I got him. The gold one is about 4” now but he hides a lot, and he’s a scared little b so he might not be eating that much. The Senegal eats like a little pig though. Despite this, from reading what others have said on this site, it seems like they are both well behind the curve for growth for being about a year old right? They are fed bloodworms, and pellets and some flake food are also put into the tank for the tank mates in there. The other ones are a dwarf frog, a ghost catfish, and one Columbian tetra. They are all grown and all about 3” long max, except the bichirs. It’s a 55 gallon tank, so not overcrowded. If these bichirs are not growing as they should, does anyone have any idea of what to do to make them grow faster? I want them to be the size of my forearm.
