Breeding Bichirs (Polypterus)

Any one had any success breeding Polypterus? I'm a graduate student that desperately wants larvae for my PhD project! I know several species have been bred in captivity, but can't seem to find any protocols for it. Any personal experience or references would be appreciated.

Send a message via AIM to Lance M.
You should PM Toirtis. He is a reptile expert and he has a LOT of bichirs. He would probably be the best person to ask.
