Polypterus ansorgii (Guinean bichir)
Bichirs are large, predatory fish distinguished by their armoured bodies, numerous dorsal fins, and lobed pectoral and pelvic fins. They have a very ancient look about them, and can make interesting and rewarding pets.
This rare species has a dark, mottled dorsal surface and a lighter belly.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
This is a rarely seen species and little is known for certain. Best kept in a species tank or with large but peaceful fish. May be territorial and aggressive towards other bichirs.
Bichirs are predators and will take a wide variety of live foods including mealworms, river shrimp, and bloodworms. They will also accept dead foods such as frozen prawns, mussels, and lancefish.
