If kept unfed it is a good chance that the bichir would take advantage of the danios. I keep giant danios with my bichirs and haven't lost one but i keep mine nice and fat.

it depends on the species. Upper jaw species are for the most part smaller and get between 10-24" and lower jaw species can get above 30"

From what I've read, they'll eat anything that can fit in their mouth - and sometimes what can't.

I'd like to buy one so badly, but my tank is only a 40 gallon. :( :(
