    Senegal bichir tank mates?

    I know this has been asked already, but I wanted some fresh opinions. Could a senegal bichir do well with maybe an elephant nose, african brown knife, or african cichlids? Please answer!

    Senegal bichir personality?

    Hey y'all. I might get a senegal bichir so I wanted to know what they are like. Do they handfeed? Do they like to be pet? Will they follow you in the tank? Please tell me!

    Can a black ghost knife and a senegal bichir live together comfortably?

    Hey y'all. Soon I'm going to get a black ghost knife and I wanted to know if a senegal bichir and a bgk could get along. I love them and would love to keep both, but I'm only allowed one tank. So, please tell me how they do together.
