Polypterus delhezi (Delhezi's 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.

Light grey above and cream coloured below, this fish has a series of dark horizontal bands running across the back and down the flanks.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Intolerant of other bichirs including its own species, this fish can be mixed with large community fish such as catfish and barbs of similar size.

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.
