Not pictured but will go into the 300g is a regani. With the selling of our home, move and remodel I did not keep up with water chages so the poor guy has some hole in the head. He is in my 75g going through metro treatment. Miss having his color In the tank.

Going on almost a week set up and everything seems to be running well. The water turns color pretty quickly due to the mopani tannin so I have changed water every other day now. I forgot how much of a poop machine the pleco is! I end up doing a small gravel vac of poo daily!

A couple more random pictures:

Teugelsi bichir named Tweedle due to the tweed patterning


Delhezi bichir named Darwin


Porkchop the pearsei in size comparison pic with the others. She is 14" now


This little guy has grown really sloooooow.... Heterospilus named Monty because they are called 'montecristo cichlid'
Snooki the red bay snook in the background


Interesting behavior with the fish in the big tank. The bichirs are all over the place and the teug will dash from one side of the tank to the other. The snook has staked out a little territory and been ultra aggressive and flares at all the fish. Porkchop has bit her a couple times now to keep her in line. Once this week of treatment is done on the regani and I put him back in the 300g Im sure the dynamics will change yet again. The fun of cichlids!

So now that Im all set up and running I have time to actually sit and watch my fish. Super happy with the way the aquarium came out!

You and I are some of the few who own bichir on this site. Its nice to be able to talk about our poly's. I dont have pics of the anal fins but I have sexed mine.

This is what I have and the sex of each
Delhezi - Male
Weeksii - Female
Palmas Palmas - Male
Buettikoferi - Male
Teugelsi - Female

I have been thinking to rehome the smaller ones that hide a lot, the Buettikoferi and Palmas Palmas. I would probably get a lower jaw like a lap or a sp. type like Koloton or Koliba.

i love your delhezi... if you are just in the corner, i will barrow it or exchange with my endli... LOL!

i stumble with the dragon fin when one of my friends dumped his fish into my tank..
i was amazed how elegant they are when looking for food or when looking at me..
it remind me of Falcor from the "Never Ending Story"

i have always thought that Bichirs were so cool. i never have got one before. they aren't real popular out here in shops. but i have came across a few over the years and just never pulled the trigger.

but its good to see you have plenty of them :)
