Head on with Polypterus delhezi

Snapped this shot of one of my baby (but rapidly growing) Armored Bichirs - Polypterus delhezi. If you look closely you can see the external gills quite distinctly.

Wow -- that's a pretty big baby! Is that the same Polypterus that you have been posting? If it is, then it's growing fast! Quite an interesting fish!

Yeah, looks like he'll be outgrowing that 10 gallon really soon.

Great shot!

Don't let the picture fool you. It is still a baby and would have a hard time measuring four inches even if it stretched!! Still...this one and its brother/sister (they're tough to distinguish at this age) are growing very nicely and will be ready for a bigger tank in a few months.
