Polypterus ornatipinnis, the Ornate Bichir, is one of the more boldly patterned species of Polypterus available. Growing about 18-24” it is neither an exceptionally large or particularly small species of Bichir. Like all bichirs it is a fairly peaceful fish as long as tank mates don’t fit in its mouth. Good tankmates include mid to large sized cichlids, silver dollars, morymyrids, and large barbs (among many other options)
