Meet Om Nom, the senegal bichir.

here's my little baby Om Nom, I've had him since summer and he lives with my rift valley cichlids in a 55g tank. I managed to get some cool shots of him with my iphone 4 (which is difficult, as the camera focuses on the glass). This is his "I know you just fed me, but MOAR FOOD" face.

thanks guys :D
Betta Slave: they're a joy to have, and don't grow to such ridiculous lengths like 20 inches like some people on the internet say. 12 inches, max. They're also relatively smart, breathe atmospheric air, and are absolutely BOMBPROOF. My guy survived a heater malfunction, a tank cycle issue, and an ich outbreak without a mark on him.

Aww! I deeply considered one of these guys, but they're too snake-like for my mother to handle (she's petrified of snakes). Someday...!

Om Nom is a straight up boss, I'm glad to see he has some fans XD He got an algae wafer as a treat for being so cool. He loves to grab them and shake them like a dog XP
JBosley: Doooo itttt, don't let some sources of information scare you off though, they don't grow to overwhelmingly large sizes, other bichirs do however.
Badjer: awww :(( definitely do get one at some point though, they're just too cool.
