    I was wondering how compatible are Col.Sharks with puffers, dragon gobys, Bichir and loaches. I'm just thinking of getting one of these fish since their not community to add to my big tank.

    Puffers tend to do best in a species-only tank.

    I don't know enough about gobies to comment, but bichirs and loaches are freshwater fish and would not tolerate the amount of salt the columbian shark would eventually need.

    PlanetCatfish has the following to say about tankmates:

    is there any species of puffers that can coincide with them, my local pet shop tells me that maybe the Fig.8 would be a good choice but they only have green neons in atm. I like the mono's but they get huge(and their kind of expensive around here)

    Are you prepared for how large these fish will get :cool: just wondering

    oh absolutely, thats half the reason i got them. I have plans to get them into a much larger tank, and was lookin for a tank mate that they wont try and eat and at the same time wont eat them.
