Polypterus bichir lapradei - I'm good.....I'm bad.....I'm...

This is a shot of the 'business end' of my new (bought it today) "Guinea" variant of Polypterus bichir lapradei. The fish is about 11 inches long and is happily exploring his new home.

More full-body shots later.

-Joe

Thanks for the comments.

gheitman...

They get to a maximum of about 74.0cm (28.9 inches). He's currently in a 100 gallon tank.
