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"

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

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. :( :(

Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.
