Comments: These are fabulous looking fish with unique characteristics and a prehistoric appearance.
Origin: Bichirs are found in Africa as wild fish.
But now skillful professional fish farmers are breeding them, and so they are found living in many aquariums all over the world.
Maximum Size: In aquariums, this Bichir can grow to be about 18" long, and sometimes larger if fed properly and if the water quality is good.
Behaviors: Bichirs are usually not aggressive fish, but they will often eat small fish.
Compatibility: Some recommended tankmates include any mild tempered fish that are to small, or they may be eaten by the Bichir.

Temperature: Bichirs live best from about 75 to 80-degrees F. with 78 being perhaps ideal.
