The bichir will eventually outgrow the tank. I have not successfully kept ANY fish with bichirs other than other bichirs, they are best in species only tanks. The feeder fish are a good diet for them. Mine also eat bloodworms.
Hi, wanted to ask you a question about bichirs, my son bought me one, I really did not have the room for one, and right now it is in a 20 gallon, it is approx 2.5 to 3 inches long, Im not sure what i am gonna do with it yet. is there any fish that are safe with it. i am currently feeding it shrimp pellets and feeder fish.
