It's CB P. congicus that bred in 2013 and i think this is the one that bred with Wild catch parents.
(I believe this one is one of the first CB congicus ever.)

First two shots are taken in 2013 and last two are from 2 years later.

We can see very sharp head that hardly distinguishable with WC specimens.

First case of Polypterus breeding in Korea.

This photo was more than 10years ago, i believe it's around 2006 or 2007.

This fish is hybrid between Polypterus senegalus and Polypterus polli bred by Mr. Park, who is one of the best natural breeder in the world.

He started to breed bichir when he was in Elementary school and middle school and now he breed Garfish and other very difficult species to breed only with natural breeding technique.
(he is the one who helped me to success my breeding projects)

He also succeed for spawn and hatch of Datnioides pulcher few years ago without any hormone treatments.

Because he is still young, about 30 years old now so i'm looking very forward what he will do in the future.
