New youngster in the bichir grow-out tank

Here's one of my latest acquisitions....a young (4") Polypterus ornatipinnis. He's checking out the new digs after being released from the bag.

He looks very happy! I don't have this fish, but I did see one at the hatchery. How many tanks do you have, Fruitbat? Is it one tank for each species you list in your sig? (for example, one tank for all the bichers, one tank for all the anabantids, or how are they arranged in each tank?)

An-tiasg....

The bichirs occupy multiple tanks along with most of the Bush Fish and other African fish. All of the Asian fish are in a couple of separate tanks as well. All told...I have 6 aquaria at this point and there will be a 120 in the near future that will house the vast majority of the African beasties.

Thanks, Joe! I was wondering about all the bichirs -- I know they get big! A 120 gallon will be nice to have for all your beasties! (then you can get more for the other tanks!)
