    On a side note... My bichir is a polypterus senegalis. I know she's gonna get big but do you think it would be compatible with a current 13" common pleco? I'm sure she couldn't do anything to the main body but im worried about fin nipping and overall annoyance between the two

    I'd say so, mine is still growing in the same tank as a 12" common pleco. They don't care about each others presence and I rarely see them near one another in the first place.
    What size tank though?
