Senegal Bichir compatibility


Recommended Posts

I think the general rule with bichirs is 3" and up won't be eaten, but barbs are pretty good about not getting eaten regardless. Just make sure to get a large enough school so the fighting stays amongst them. They can be rambunctious, and do harm to generally timid species such as the bichir.

 

Also what are HRP have not ran across that acronym yet?

@BlueLineAquaticsSCColumbian Tetras get nice and chunky and school really well, great colors blue and red, and size wise are good for that setup right around 3”. The other would be Congo tetras which females get to 2 3/4 males >3”. You also have some good barb options - filament and mascara barbs are incredible!
