Bichir and RD

So I just did water changes all around tonight, and thought I needed some pics of my bichir (Jameson). So here they are


And well needless to say... Why Jameson was finally getting some love... Who gets all pouty..? Yuuuup... Killian my red devil. And well... That's my guy so I had to take a few shots of him along with a short video. So here are those pics.

The RD is in a 55, and the bichir is in a 30/40 I forget what it actually is.

Both are fead pellets as the staple of their diets, and occasional crickets,live feeders, and frozen shrimp/blood worms.

Both are roughly 8" or so.

Both are very cool fish I'm do happy to keep both.

Both are about a year old and around 8" each.

Really am happy to keep both, they are totally different but both enjoyable in their own right.

Yeah mine is about a year old. I would love to do a bichir tank, but as you must know that requires very large tanks for up to 30" bichirs. (for some of the other species) Haha.

I'm hoping to use him as an excuse to get a bigger tank. lol
The other bichir i have is an ornatipinnis which get to ~24" long and he was only 3" when i got him a few months ago. He is almost double his size now.
I used to have a Delhezi but he decided to go awol at 10"
