New pick-up - Hepsetus odoe aka African Pike.

26 Feb 2020

I was looking for Rope fish or African Bush fish for my African theme tank but ended up with a pair of pikes to comm with my bichirs.

Very cool oddball fish and I just realized there are other recognized species (recent discovery) under this family - Hepsetus kingsleyae, H. lineata, H. akawo & H. cuvieri.

Last kept was back in 2002/3.

Chanced upon these wild caught Nigerian Polypterus senegalus at Clementi LFS today.
