    90 gallon tankmates

    What tankmates would work best with red eye tetras and a Senegal bichir? (90 gallon aquarium) I would prefer large tankmates, either one extra large centrepiece fish or a couple large fish. Possibly larger peaceful chichlids?

    Senegal Bichir Has Strange Behavior?

    I wonder why my Bichir behave strangely the last 2 days. It behaves like a wild, sweeping sands at 1 part of my tank so that it becomes low & then makes the sand in the middle of my tank to be high. My water becomes cloudy due to the strange behavior of this fish.   FYI, the places of the mess...
