    Hello, I have a 250 gallon tank on its way to my home which should be arriving on the 5th of August, the Bichir bug has bitten me hard and at this point I have three Senegal Bichir and one ornatipinnus, I was wondering what some good semi agressive tank mates would be that would fill the upper level of the tank in a bit more that would not be too agressive for my bichir while also not being small enough to fit in their mouths. The tank will be heavily planted with non robust plants with hopes that the bichir will not tear apart my scape work. I am open to any and all suggestions thank you so much for your time!

    It is a 250 long

    A bunch of African cichlids, with a rocky landscape! Would look beautiful!!

    Tons of ideas here:  

    Compatibility section starts about halfway down the page. I'd vote for a biotope with some of the African fish from that list!
