    I first saw them in a store up the road from me, but those were babies. how big do they grow or is it species dependent? I would really like one but I wouldnt want to put myself in a situation likes some of the vids I see on YT when people just dont have space for large fish anymore.

    About 25cm is the norm for senegal bichirs. Delhezi are sometimes a little larger. A 250l is sufficient for life
