Polypterus Ornatipinnis have long eel-like bodies that will add a peculiar appearance to your tank.
They are very popular in the aquarium trade for their truly unique look and their bright coloration. You can even get albino variations, with bright red eyes and completely white skin.
These hardy fish might not be the easiest fish to care for, however, nothing beats having living fossils that look as old as the fish from the beginning of time, in your aquarium.
