Here is my new catch.

WC Polypterus ansorgii from Corubal (Koliba) river, Guinea.
65cm female and 55cm male.

As all expect, they are my new project.

I saw there was Kamihata breed (F1 from wild pair) ansorgii that grow up to 70cm in Japan more than 10 years ago and i just thought that's what i have to do.

CB ansorgii in now days are too inbred with small parents and hormone treatment so they can't grow up big like WC fish does and i want to see some really nice CB ansorgii myself sooner or later.
