Ornate Bichir

By

Auckland, New Zealand

A bit too aggressive for my taste, but luckily, most of the other fish in my 2000 gallons pond was bigger than this Ornate Bichir. It even looks scary and dangerous. I fed it lots of live shrimp and frozen worms, but it also sometimes ate pellet food. Liked to stay at the bottom, and really blended in well with my gravel bottom. Perhaps not the best choice for community ponds, especially with smaller fish
