The senegal is always going to be a part of morgoth since he ate it Dr.Gonzo4. lol. I too have my eyes on ancient fishes I wanted a lungfish at first but when I saw a senegal in a petshop my life changed. since then I became addicted to polys. beblonde helped me a lot on my very first months of rearing my new found friend. Years had passed they still amaze me and a great conversation starter.

My first was a rope fish, E. calabricus. As a kid, I was not allowed to keep snakes. This was the closest I could get. Rope fish are much more active than most snakes, and their movement through the water & rocks got me hooked. Now that I'm older and married to a woman that does not like snakes, polys were the logical choice. I guess you do get attracted to people who are like your parents.lol.

Currently, I've got six role fish, an old Senegal, a poli, del, and a breeding pair of Ornates. Currently raising 5 ornate juv. Yes I'm hooked.

Feed mostly hikari sinking pellets offset with black worms or blood worms.

Agreed prehistoric creatures are of high interest to me. I started out as a reptile snake guy and when i jumped into fish my late hommie J'wan or fw lion showed me to the bichirs. I have been into them ever since. I almost lost me mind when my aqua log poly book arrived. Now I am on the hunt for a species poster of polypterus. I think they look like under water dragons.
