dragon bichir, what will he eat
 
I have a question before i buy one of these. I've had one before and would love to get another one. However, full grown, how big of fish will he eat? My old one ate my neons before i knew they ate fish :oops:. I'm just curious what the smallest he will eat is so i can plan accordingly what fish to keep with him.

nobody knows what a full grown bichir is capable of eating?

Senegal Bichir? Saying they reach 16" long, I would think there head gets around 4". So 4" fish.

Be careful with this one. I have seen both senegals and armored bichirs eat things almost as big as themselves. Basically just make sure its not shorter than your bichir, or that it doesnt fit in its mouth.
