They will get eaten by my leopard ctenopoma.. He ate my school of giant danios so I'm looking towards more singular fish that get to a good suze

At only 32" long makes it hard to find something colorful that can stand up to your existing stock.

They only get to like the size of a computer mouse. I'd be more afraid of the 15 inch bichir you're going to have eating it.

The bichir only gets to 8in. The ornate and other ones get big
