How do you tell the difference between polypterus palmas palmas and polypterus palmas polli?

And do Polypterus delhezi have the same temperament as p. senegalus (peaceful to other polypterus species)?

P.delhizi is a bit more aggressive than P.senegalus toward other fish including other bichirs, though still nothing to be worried about with equally sized fish.
Having never seen a P.palmas polleni i couldnt really tell the difference other than they are bigger than P.palmas palmas

They have different patterns. Go to WW and look up the bichir key, they have visuals. Or you could google them both and compare.

As for the delhezi, they're generally peaceful. I find that the lower jaw bichirs (endi, congi, lap) are the more aggressive ones. My ornate snapped a few times, but is generally peaceful.
