Ornate Bichir, Polypterus ornatipinnis, is said to be one of the more attractive members of this prehistoric-looking fish family. With its elongated body and dorsal fin displaying more prominently along the back half of its dorsal ridge, this fish is hardy and will survive in most water conditions. It will also survive for a time out of water using a modified labyrinth organ. In its native African waters, it will swim in the open, but will also use rock and driftwood cover where it will hide as it stalks its next prey. As an active swimmer, it can tend to jump and requires a covered aquarium.
