If you have a dinosaur bichir, tell me what you think of it? Will they eat full size mollies?
Moved as it was posted in wrong section.:wink2:
Also known as Ornate Bichir. Scientific name is Polypterus ornatipinnis.
Bichirs will grow at 30-45 cm so be prepared for a large tank. Yes, they are predatory and will eat even your mollies. They are best kept with fish large enough not to be eaten. Arowanas and spiny eels make good tankmates for bichirs.:wink2:
I have a Ornate they are very fascinating fish. They are, well mine is a piccy eater. But a mollie would be ridht up his street.
Dlil, you seem to type carelessly.:mrgreen:
Could be "rid" rather than "ridht" or Kate will only laugh at you after "Spinlter".:mrgreen:
My father used to have 2 Senegal's bicher or Polypterus senegalensis.Maybe different species but they're still the same.:mrgreen: Weird though. His bichirs never ate neons and convicts.:dunno: For all I know, my father kept incompatible species 12 years ago.:blink:
Neither, It should be right. :oops: Ornate are also very quick growers.
Neons, convicts, rainbow shark and arowana.
I wonder how the neons survived considering his tank was barely decorated.:dunno:
That's ok with errors, dlil. We commit a lot of mistakes..lol..:mrgreen:
Do not put me in your boat with this "we" stuff :lol: . They can be taught to hand feed as well.
Hand feed? Nah. The only way you handfeed them is with long tongs if your tank is quite deep.:crazy:
I have an Ornate bichir. They are awsome never tried to hand feed tho. :)
Never mind. I read this in SW but then again I see it in FW.
