I would not do 2 in a 40B. 1 should be fine if I remember correctly.

Yep, and to my understanding they can hold their own pretty well.

Q:Like are they shy? How active can they be?
A: They are not shy fish at all. They are extremely active when hungry.

Q:Do they like tankmates that they cant eat?
A: YES

Q:Should I only have one or can two work together?
A: Put as many as you want together. I have a pond with a couple large adults in there.

Q: How well do they do in planted aquariums?
A: They do well but they will tear most live plants up over time..

Q:Should the tank be mostly covered or do they like sparser conditions?
A:Open top with medium lighting

Bichirs, being narrow, are VERY good escape artists. The cover should be well-fitted with no spaces they can fit through (ie, gaps where the filter or heater are). They literally just slither on out, not realizing there's no water on the other side. However, they will survive a short time out of water so it's not a dire catastrophe if they do escape. They are also accomplished jumpers, another reason to have a tight-fitting hood.

Post pics when you get one. :)

Thank you for the information!

What tankmates would you recommend? I only have a 40gallon breeder so im not sure I can have anything else in there...
