I'm surprised you are willing to keep a Protopterus and P. ornatipennis together. Eventually, you will probably just have a fat lungfish.
Love those primitive fish!
BTW - have you ever offered crayfish to your lungfish. The lab I worked in had one for years (we now have another). It ate minnows, meat, shrimp etc well, but certainly not with any sense of excitement. One day we threw a live crayfish in there! Holy Toledo, did that excite the lungfish! The battles were great as well, but you can guess who won!
