Suggestions For An African Biotope full of prey for my Senegal Bichir?
I bought my bichir very young at my LFS. So, I have been growing him out in my 25 gallon. However, he looks as if he will be ready for the 55 here within the week. Knowing this just yesterday I pressure cooked wood and sand and spent at least a couple of hours carrying buckets back and forth from the bathroom. Now, as the sand is finally starting to settling and I can't help but wounder what I should add with my bichir.
I know that it is hard to find long lasting tank mates for my little guy so I thought I would try to fill his tank with mates that if he were in the wild he would be eating anyway.
I know that african dwarf frogs are safe for bichirs and a common prey in there natural environment. What other types of fish could I get for him to feed on?
I would still be supplementing his diet with beef heart, tilapia strips, bloodwroms and so on. I just think that a predator maybe happier given the abillity to hunt.
