Senegal Bichir tankmates

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.
