Oh yes, we started ours out in the 29 and quickly upgraded to the 45, and now are getting ready to move him/her to the 75.... and as soon as space becomes available he/she will be moved to the 125, that the Oscars are currently in, and the Oscars will get their new tank....

Haha that's why I'm waiting until I can just go straight for the largest tank. They grow so fast! I've already done the multiple-tank-upgrade thing with turtles, which grow a little slower, and that was annoying enough.

What a great little guy, Seaknight!

Do you guys think its possible to keep a group of feeders in the tank with a Bichir for him to graze on? (That is what I did with my turtles) Or would it just pig out and eat every last one in one day?

He would pig out lol. Keep in mind that goldfish are NOT good feeders and you should be providing insects/larvae and large meat fish rather than aquarium fish as well as a good staple pellet like NLS Thera A

I think they are too slow. The journal I posted had them with rainbows and even a lone danio for several months before it got caught. They've never struck me as pro hunters aha.

They are. Mine cleared out my tank for the most part within a week.
