Thanks for your answer! I am no fish expert either and yes the pattern on the fish, combined with the more dorsal eyes looks like a bichir. But this one has two distinct dorsal fins and a tail fin (unlike most bichir which have a long dorsal fin merging with the tail). It is swimming around more now, I guess it needed some time to adjust. I also noticed that it can swim and stand straight up. Also, I noticed that it has a (third) "ventral wing" underneath on which it can rest. You can see better on this new picture. It measures about 7cm.
