My own Polypterids...

This is a list of the Polypterid fishes currently in my own collection, which has been steadily built up over several years. I have been very pleased to be able to add both the most recently described Polypterus, P. teugelsi, and the elusive P. ansorgii to my collection recently. However, I am always on the lookout for good specimens, particularly of the ones which are hard to find here in the UK - such as P. mokelembembe (the species that used to be known as P. retropinnis) for example.
