Hmm the ropefish should be able to reach something like 70+cm but its so thin so its nothing.The endlicheri should be able to reach 50+cm but 45cm is more common.A p.endlicheri congicus or a p.bichir bichir can reach around 70-90cm i think.

Thanks guys!=).Took him home from a friend earlier today=).It will look nicer soon i hope.The previous owner had him in a bare tank with black painted backside,bottom and sides so he don´t have the coloration and patterns that he should have.My tank is brighter with sand on the bottom and without 8-10 bigger bichirs that bullies him.

The sorgi is dead=(.Jumped thru the top glass on a spot were it as cracked!.Found it on the floor saturday morning,lifeless and with shattered glass all around.I ran with him into my bathroom and tried to get him wet to se if he would wake up and he did.But im sad to say that he only lived to yesterday after 2 days of fighting for his life and to recover from bleeding scales after him drying out=/.Not happy,not happy at all.It was one in a 1000 fish and almost impossible for me to find a that big VF sorgi again.But im going to get a 30cm+ lapradei female later this week or next to make me stop thinking about the sorgi=/.
