Finally, its color is coming, it's now a real ansorgii!!! :lol: However, it grows really slowly (only grew few inches since it's here). I can't imagine it could grow out like the one on Japanese magzine.

Very nice pictures again bro :)

I think it may be a species with grow spurts instead of a linear growth.

Nice ansorgii bro. where did you get him? i had one supplier with one for 30,000Nt and heard there was another one in Xin Zhu for the same price.

How many different species you have now?

It's from Toyin through Basil Aquarium. Mine is the first batch of BA doing business with Toyin, and the price was fair enough. And, the one you saw is most probably from the same source, except they asked much higher price. I have/had almost all bichir species except the P. bichir bichir.

Yeah, not until you can tell the rectangels you can't call it a ansorgii.:D

Maybe it's because your photos are really good, but I've never seen an ansorgii with such nice head pattern, and the detailed pattern in the 'space' between the rectangle pattern! Very cool!

Haha, bro, you are really nice to say that. Honestly, the photos are not exactly what it looks like in real. Those patches are not pure black, there's also olive green together with the black. My fault!!!:banhim:
