Senegal Bichir growing up fast


Recommended Posts

About 6 weeks ago I bought a little 2” Bichir and put him in my cichlid tank. I was a little afraid of the cichlids bullying him but figured I had enough hides it would work out. Now I have a robust 7” Bichir that I’m worried might start eating those cichlids soon. I did not expect him to grow this fast. I know it’s on average they get about 20” but I don’t know how long that takes. Should I expect him to keep growing at the same rate or will it start to fall off? He is also eating more than I was expecting. I bought 2 dozen Rosy’s  yesterday  and when I got home from work today only 3 were left. It used to take him a lot longer to go through them.
