Got my 75 setup and will be getting a senegal bichir, a peacock eel and a zig zag eel soon. I want a larger schooling fish so I was thinking clown loaches but they will eventually outgrow the tank, bala sharks also came to mind but I'm not sure how fast they would outgrow the tank, then I came across the pictus cat and saw they get to around 5 inches ( so it says on liveaquraia ) so could these work with a bichir and eels? And if so how many? I have a very small stripped raphael cat I'll be putting in there also when he's older but could I put maybe a type of synodontis in there also since there easy for me to get around here already fully grown?

I would do it.....the larger Polys would try to eat a Pictus probably and end up choking to death but a Senegal or a Ropefish would be fine

I would keep them in a group of 5 or so but they are very active and imo would need a 6 foot long tank as a school when larger
