    Polypterus endlicheri endlicheri - Discussion

    Hi bros, I'll be honoured to start this thread on the most common lower jaw species, the P.E.E

    I hope to get good input from fellow hobbyists on this species, the ways to identify the many wild variants and of course, to share their collection! Let me begin!

    My CB specimen I had not too long ago


    Tikinso



    Volta



    Guinea


    Other than these 3 variants, what other variants are there available for us hobbyists?

    Don't forget Chad and Nigeria.

    Talking of which, they had 3 great looking Nigerians in my LFS today.
    Will pick them up next week and post them here.

    Posted my endi in the other thread recently.


    For me, not too particular about the variants but really keen to pump mine into the shape of those stegosaurus.

    I've never had an Endli but if i ever do get one, it'll be the Volta. There's just something about them that looks different.

    pardon me.but may i know the difference between the "stego" types.
    stared at the pictures and cannot seem to find much difference between a "stego" endi and a WC

    I believe it's the shape of it. A fat fat hump on the back that makes it look like that dinosaur.

    That one is actually been mis-id by aquashop bonito. That one looks like polypterus sp. dobola. Endlicheri don't have racing stripes like the bichir complex does. Could be a natural wild cross of endli x lap.

    Impressive heap there King-el!! Your volta looks 'patchy' like a piebald morph of an endi I saw online somewhere!

    Guine and Tikinso are the same. Tikonso is the southern part of Guinea

    Oh? Didn't know that! From my observations, Tikinso and Guinea are different! For example, the base colour of the Guinea is lighter than that of the Tikinso and the former has lesser and thicker bars than the latter. Could you help us list the ways of differentiating a locality from another? It would definitely help us identify them better! Also, from this, we could also differentiate wild-caught specimens from captive-bred ones.

    I've been trying to find a good map on the rivers and waterways of Africa but have yet to come across anything that I could rely on. Probably you could share a link or 2 to help us?
