So that's where Ricky's (Infblue) bichirs went. He donated them to this aquarium! :) Thanks for sharing! Good to know where they are now.
That’s amazing! Bet those bichirs are even more of the celebrities now. Let’s all go on a Group field trip.

GREAT NEWS EVERYONE! The Georgia Aquarium has a species-specific endlicheri tank now! It is amazing and in their new section which features a few other habitats of the Congo! I Will post pictures as soon as I can. I am in no way affiliated with the Georgia Aquarium, but was super excited they featured bichirs/polys!

Not much of an aquarium, but I’ll add that Disney’s animal kingdom has 2 large ornates at the gorilla falls exhibition in with mbunas:

I wonder do they know that the Ornate is from the Congo.
Probably. Most people working there seem pretty knowledgeable about their animals and their origins. Or at least they knew when putting it in originally.
I’m just surprised it didn’t eat them all.
