The Albino Polypterus Palmas is native to the Congo, Ghana "Africa", with very dense vegetation in streams and lakes. Plants and driftwood is not needed but would be appreciated and makes the Albino Polypterus Palmas feel more secure in their environment. Be cautious with tank mates as this Polypterus can eat any fish that fit in their mouth. So look at adding larger Characins, Knifefish, Datnoids, Synodontis, and other Polypterus. Males have larger anal fins then females. Polypterus are also more nocturnal and rely heavily on their sense of smell because of their bad vision.
