I love the new sections! my bichir is one of my favorite fish it is 6" now and probably around 5-6months old. However he is growing slower and slower to the point i dont think it grows anymore. the oscar is 10-10.5" but what im worried about is the jack dempsey catching up to him (only about 3" now). i just got home from the store and bought cichlid sinking pellets. so his diet is sinking shrimp pellets the new sinking ones and he has recently been eating krill out of my hand or ill drop it on his head, im hoping this new trick makes him grow! i was wondering if there was much else i could do? live foods? or what do you feed your bichirs?

Mine will take frozen prawns too, I normally turn my lights off for an hour so my fish calm down then feed the Bichir as they are more active at night,.

Haku, I knew your were good.
