Are no local fish stores open in your area?
If I'm not mistaken ontario has a few fish stores that are really good. It may be worth it for you to drive a couple hours to the nearest fish store and pick the bichir up and come back. Def cheaper than 120 shipping which is absurd.

That sucks then lol. Big Als doesn’t have delehezi bichirs? They are relatively common IME as my PetSmart has them in stock at one point but chain stores vary. Hopefully you end up finding one cause they are wonderful fish!
