Bichir Tank Mates

I was wondering if any one had any ideas on stocking a 5ft tank with a 12 inch bichir in it.. I want it to be colourful and also want it to be planted! it used to house 2 big Oscars along with the bichir but I sold the Oscars to a breeder.

Most cichlids will do well...silver dollars or giant danios can also work....I've also had success with african knifefish....most larger catfish work too...anything that is either too big or too oddly shaped to fit in the bichirs mouth should be fine
