    Saw it at a fish store in an unlabeled tank. It was a short while back, but I think it was somewhere between 12-18 inches long.

    Looks like a lungfish of some sort. @chromedome52 might be able to get more specific

    That is helpful enough in itself! Thank you, @tyguy7760
    We'll see if he has a species ID for us, too, then!

    I think it is the West African lungfish, Protopterus annectens. They get over 3 feet long.
