Lol all you like, it's not as silly as you may think. I know there's some predators that like to be lazy. In other words, why hunt if food drops in? I just don't know if that's true for bichir.

Call around to your local LFS, some will let you trade in fish like that. I got $20 trade in value for the big red tail I took in at my local place
