I never intended to buy another bichir as I have been quite happy with the two that I have. However today I just had to bring this little guy home. A bit of a history with him:

This fish has lived at the pet-store for quite a while. Long enough that the staff have named him Stumpy because he came in with only one front fin. There does not appear to be any damage to the area. It seems likely this little guy was born this way. Now, normally I'm not one for taking in fish in this situation especially considering what they wanted for him. There is no telling how long he has been living in too small of a tank. It may be that there will already be some stunting involving with his growth. However, I wanted to give him a better chance than he has there and the sooner he goes to a bigger tank the better chances will be.

It's not like they didn't take good care of's just that no one seems to want a one finned bichir :C

Anyway after talking them down on the price the guy went to pick the fish up with the net. Well Stumpy decided to shoot out of the net, slither across a few tank tops and then slide behind a row of tanks. Due to the set up he got stuff and 4 staff later we located him, got him unstuck and he fell further down where I was able to scoop him up.

I'm not sure if he got any internal damage or not from the escapade. His name is now Rose Eye Stumpini. If he didn't sustain any damage and manages to swim well enough to breach...then he will have a loving home for life with me. The stay in the 80 gallon is temporary. His future home will be in the 150 Gallon.
