 hi  everybody,
                                               i  have  been  having  a  senegal  birchir  in  a  small  bucket  with
 only  abt  a  1  ft  water  for  the  past  few  days(due  to  some  tank  rearrangements)  and  he  seems  to  be  doing  fine  .he  is  even  taking  feed,so  
 i  wondered  if  he  too  has  a  labyrinth  like  members  of  the  anabantidae  family?can  anyone  throw  some  light  on  this  ?
   thanks  in  advance.
                                                             tina.

 Technically,  no.  Bichirs  have  a  modified  swim  bladder  which  allows  them  to  breath  air...  similar  to  the  primitive  lung  in  lung  fishes.
 
 FWIW,  water  depth  has  little  bearing  on  the  ability  of  most  fish  to  survive,  provided  they  are  fully  submerged  and  there  is  a  supply  of  oxygen.

 Bichirs  are  for  the  most  part  fairly  mild  mannered  fish,  although  they  are  not  fond  of  other  bichirs...  Smile    They  will  also  try  to  eat  smaller  fish...  keep  an  eye  on  the  red  devil.
 
 They  can  be  housed  with  other  largish  fish  which  will  not  out-eat  them.

 Most  probably  it  may  get  gobbled  up  by  the  above  mentioned  monsters,  especially  the  Shovelnose.
