Senegal Bichir tank mates?
Fell in love with a pair of these guys and bought themand am working on getting them a good sized tank. I also have a Gold Gourami who has to be seperated from our other tank (filled with neon tetras and a couple gold dojo loaches) and am right now housing the two bichirs with him. When I get them a larger tank would it be safe to move him to the new tank with them or is he stuck living in solitary again? If he's in solitary again, I may just get him a dwarf frog for company since he only attacks fish swimming in the middle of HIS tank.

Also, what would make good tankmates for these two (both if the gourami moves in with them or if not)

One last question. How quickly do these guys grow? (so i know how soon I should get the new tank)

Well, to start off, how large is the tank they are in now?
Sengal Bichir get big.

I keep my senegal with an african knife, congo tetras and a spotted ctenopoma in a 55.

Goldfish - your knife is a featherfin, probably a clown knife.
