Ornate Bichirs are, considered by some, to be the most beautiful of the Bichirs. Their pattern tends to fade and blend as they grow, so try to find juveniles with distinct coloration, as they will maintain their pattern longer. Always make sure the aquarium is tightly covered with no open holes or means of escape. Bichirs are messy eaters, so provide good filtration and frequent partial water changes to maintain good water quality. Even though they are bottom dwellers, they must be able to surface when they feel like it. This is because they breathe oxygen from the air as well. Always ensure that your Bichir has enough room to go up for a fresh breath of air.
