They get pretty big so I hope you have a good place to keep it. A couple hundred gallon pond would be ideal.
Anything that will fit in its mouth will be eaten. They are nocturnal foragers so it may chomp on pretty much anything you try to keep with it, big or small.

Softshells are excellent predators. Their long neck and powerful beak allow them to eat fast fish as well as fish that too big to fit whole.

They eat everything. Anything I imagine you could put in with it you'd have to have a huge tank for. A little more info on its tank or enclosure would be a lot of help though, if the situation is right there might be some fish you could successfully keep it with. But honestly, that's sort of an animal you're not easily gonna be able to keep with fish around it.
