Elevate your aquarium with the Albino Senegalus Bichir. These captivating fish offer unique charm and beauty to aquatic setups.


  • The Albino Senegalus Bichir (Polypterus senegalus) is a mesmerizing and primitive fish known for its prehistoric appearance and fascinating behavior.
  • With its albino coloration and elongated body, this bichir species adds a captivating and exotic touch to any freshwater aquarium.

Water Conditions:

  • Temperature: Ideally maintained between 75°F to 82°F (24°C to 28°C).
  • pH Levels: Prefers slightly acidic to neutral water with a pH range of 6.5 to 7.5.
  • Water Hardness: Tolerates a wide range of water hardness, but prefers soft to moderately hard water conditions.

Tank Mates:

  • Solitary Nature: Albino Senegalus Bichirs are generally solitary fish and may exhibit territorial behavior towards conspecifics and other bottom-dwelling species.
  • Compatible Tank Mates: Suitable tank mates include large, peaceful fish species such as larger tetras, barbs, gouramis, and catfish species.
  • Avoid Aggressive Species: Avoid housing with aggressive or territorial fish that may harass or outcompete the Albino Senegalus Bichir for food and space.

Feeding Habit:

  • Carnivorous Diet: Albino Senegalus Bichirs are carnivores and primarily feed on meaty foods such as live or frozen bloodworms, shrimp, earthworms, and small fish.
  • Feed a Varied Diet: Offer a varied diet to ensure nutritional balance, including high-quality sinking pellets and occasional treats such as krill or chopped seafood.
  • Feed at Night: These nocturnal predators are most active during the night, so feed them after the lights have been dimmed to encourage natural feeding behavior.


  • Tank Size: Provide a spacious aquarium of at least 75 gallons to accommodate their adult size and allow for ample swimming space.
  • Substrate: Use smooth gravel or sand substrate to mimic their natural habitat and prevent injury to their delicate undersides.
  • Hiding Places: Include plenty of hiding spots such as caves, driftwood, and plants to help the Albino Senegalus Bichir feel secure and reduce stress.
  • Water Quality: Maintain excellent water quality through regular water changes and efficient filtration, as these fish are sensitive to poor water conditions.


  • Nocturnal Activity: Albino Senegalus Bichirs are primarily nocturnal and spend much of the day resting or hiding in caves or vegetation.
  • Bottom Dwellers: These fish are bottom-dwelling predators and will often explore the substrate in search of food or shelter.


  • Rare in Captivity: Breeding Albino Senegalus Bichirs in captivity is rare and requires specific conditions, including soft, slightly acidic water and suitable spawning sites.
  • Egg Layers: Females lay adhesive eggs on submerged vegetation or substrate, and both parents may guard the eggs until they hatch.


  • Territorial Behavior: Monitor tank mates closely to ensure compatibility and prevent aggression towards smaller or more timid fish.
  • Feed Appropriately: Avoid overfeeding as Albino Senegalus Bichirs have a slower metabolism and may become overweight if fed excessively
