Not at all. Also I can update the food list since well...interesting things have happened since my last post.

I paid either 7 or 12 (cant remember) at Pets-mart for each of my two Gray Bichirs when they were just little bitty things. I paid 21 USD for my Ornate but uh, he's worth 60-80.

I've found recently that my Bichirs have started eating frozen blood-worm again. It's a good idea to put a shallow dish into your tank and lace the blood worm there to try to minimize the mess to one area. Also they are no longer going after cut up nightcrawlers but love slender red wrigglers. They eat them whole (keep in mind mine two Gray Bichir are full grown). Even half grown though I imagine they'd go after the red wrigglers.

Also if you put down a mass-ball of black-worms (which are tiny things but will dig into substrate, or mass up in a ball as a defensive mechanism) bichirs may also go after that too.
