Thanks shelagh, they are gorgeous and it is so nice to have Oscars again, so far the darker one seems to be boss. They have nice round little bellies and big appetites!

No names yet, going to see how they develop individually and then decide what suits them :)

They are settling really well, sure they've grown already LOL.

They have fully explored the tank, discovered people mean food and the darker one has decided fingers could be food... They already have the 'oscar wag' and follow you as you walk by them. Sooooo cute.

Still no names but they'll come to me in time.

The darker one seems more dominant, s/he is a little bigger so it may just be a size thing. That's the one who is bolder in general too.

The markings on the brighter one are stunning - they had a few with similar colouring at LFS - a really nice batch.

New pics - they have about doubled in size and I moved them from the 2ft to the 4ft tank last night as I felt they were big enough not to be bichir food.

Oh to give an idea of size the bichir in the 1st pic is about 9" long

The smaller one has lots of colour still - the other was always a lot darker, the pics are just not very good this time LOL

They are settling nicely into the bigger tank, next stop will be the 6ft when they grow a bit more.

Well they have settled in nicely and I'm sure have grown again already. They seem to have made friends with the tyre track eel as the 3 are always together :)
