    So far the markings have darkened slightly this morning. Hopefully it will do well under my care.

    what i was told is the white patches on the "cheeks". browsed through a mag there n basically we can see that only PBB have prominent big white patch at the cheek area. all other bichirs have patterns covering almost the entire side.

    a shot taken with my mobile this morning before i left for work:

    Will be nice to see it grow that fast. Hopefully this pc can hit 20" or more within the next few months.

    I can't have many tanks. So I have to be very sure of what I want and get only what I want although there are times that I buy without thinking.

    PBB is my die die must have collection since I started out on bichirs few years back.
