it depends on size and suply and demand, I havent seen them anywhere but the one store

Senegal Bichir is the correct name, these are about 4 inches long.

Will they work in a 35 gal long?

Will work for one Senegal bichir as a grow-out tank. They're best kept in a 4-footer tank. Height of tank will not matter but do provide a glass cover as these are excellent escape artists.

They get around 10-12" and would live no problem in a 60 gallon. If given proper diet and room they will grow quickly and like Lupin said they are great at escaping from tanks.

Like others senes go for about 5-20 here but a fish is worth what the person will pay so if you are in love with it as i am with bichirs by all means pick it up and let the collecting begin.

Im really tempted, I have talked to a few people about them, and said with care they are awsome

but im stuck weather i want one or not, im thinking now though that i will just wait until I get a bigger tank to have one.
