40 Gallon Tank Oddball/ cool personable fish for a 40 breeder.

TheAnglerAquarist

So, my dad wants an aquarium. I suggested the 40 breeder. He liked the idea. I believe he wants a slightly bigger, cool fish. He is a big fisherman, so he is used to agressive fish. Would a senigal bicher work in there? There are some puffers like the modestus that are cool and personable but they have fast growing teeth. He wouldn’t want to be a dentist!

I really like hairy puffers, they're weird and would do great in a 40b. I'm not super sure about this species teeth though, I've never kept them at home, just through work.
I also really like red wolf fish. One of those might be right up his alley, as they are aggressive but would likely work in a 40.

Cool! Hairy puffers are very sensitive and I am only at my dads every other weekend so I would do maintenance every time. Do you know anything about the Senegal bicher?

I think one would probably be ok in a 40B but that is the smallest tank size I would consider for one. Have you heard of hingemouths? They're a bit smaller and have the same shape as bichirs.

Ivanacara adoketa, the "zebra acara". Big fish personality, big fish "aggression" in a 3-4" package.

That would be cool!

They look nice, but my dad seems to like bichers more
Is it true that albino Senegal bichers stay smaller than the normal gene of senagalus?
