Ctenopoma ocellatum and Ctenopoma oxyrhynchum

Just picked up a couple of each of these fish. They're a bit camera-shy right now, as you might imagine, but at least you can get an idea of what they look like.

Ctenopoma ocellatum



Ctenopoma oxyrhynchum

Good work An t-iasg.....the Ctenopomas (Bush Fish or Climbing Perch) are African anabantids...so they are related to Betta.

Common names are:
Ctenopoma ocellatum: Bullseye Ctenopoma (or Bush Fish)
Ctenopoma oxyrhynchus: Mottled Ctenopoma (or Bush Fish)
