The African Lungfishes, also known as the Marbled lungfishes, are yellow/orange/brown marbled species originating in African regions mainly in the equatorial belt but ranging to Senegal in the north and Mozambique in the south. The range includes Ethiopia and Nigeria.
Moreover, they can grow up to larger than 48 inches. You can expect them to easily grow larger than 36 inches. The recommended tank size for adults is above 240 gallons.
The African lungfishes are carnivores; baby and adult fishes can eat earthworms, meat, tadpoles, frogs, and small fish depending on their growth. You can feed them with high protein meaty foods as well as protein rich pellets.
African lungfishes are a pretty aggressive species and have a powerful bite; therefore, it is best to keep them alone, although many people have had success keeping them with larger fish.
