So, I bought this Bichir from the pet store and it’s missing one of its fins. I looked online and a couple articles said they have the ability to regenerate a whole fin. Is this true

If you have clean water, it will regenerate it’s fin.

If the loss is too much, the fun may not grow back.

Can you send a pic?

Luckily mine is still a juvenile. So there’s a chance it would regenerate. Before it was non existent. Still. The people purposely amputated there fins of the fish in the study. So that was messed up

He still has a little ways to go before he can go in with rest of them

But do you guys believe the article

All fish can grow their fins back with clean water, but if the fin is cut off too far back, it is not likely to grow back.

That is why I’m 50-50 on the article. Cause it is basic knowledge of what you said and is almost 100% true. But the pictures above tell a different story. I only know things like zebra fish can regenerate And will he/she still be able to stand up to the other fish when it grows up
