breeding bichirs


New Member
I was just wondering if anyone has been successful in breeding Bichirs, and if so, what advice/experience they wanted to share. I have two ornate bichirs that are approximately 14-15 inches. I have them in with my rtg, two jaguar catfish, a vampire pleco and a sail fin pleco. One of the two bichirs is larger then the other, but has a much smaller anal fin. I read up and learned that's most likely the female, as the male is smaller, but has a much larger anal fin. I see them dance and see the male always around the female, and she shakes like's shes having a seizure, but I don't see any eggs or anything. Also, the tank they're all in is 240gallons, with only one bridge and one driftwood, no plants. Thanks in advance for any advice!:D
