Senegal Bichir tankmates

Hey guys, quick Q, what can I keep in a 30g with a Senegal Bichir? I can upgrade filtration and hiding spots if necisarry. Id like to have something like a Pleco, a Firemouth, s Spotted Rafael, etc


Thanks to me, my family lives in a zoo. Could the always increasing number of fish, 3 Snails, 9 Shrimp, 3 Caudates, Dog, Cat, and 2 Birds POSSIBLY have ANYTHING to do with it?

I can tell you that cichlids will eat its fins off, killing it.

I don't know about Cichlids, especially if they are aggressive, like xrayjeeper said. Anything not too aggressive and not small enough to fit in its mouth should be ok. Eventually you will need a larger aquarium for him/her.

Nothing in a 30. I have a 110 with 2 Senegal Bichirs, 2 Spotted Bushfish, and a bristlenosed pleco tha t seems to do all right. There's just not enough space for a half grown bicher in a 30.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
