    Lol all you like, it's not as silly as you may think. I know there's some predators that like to be lazy. In other words, why hunt if food drops in? I just don't know if that's true for bichir.

    No, it will just tide him over until he decides its time for a late night snack.

    I agree with others above that the 3 fish you have in this tank should all be re-homed to a larger set up, and not together. If you want a community tank with lots fish / action you can't have these guys in there. Also, this size tank is two small for cichlids unless you went for a dwarf species, which would then be eaten.

    Call around to your local LFS, some will let you trade in fish like that. I got $20 trade in value for the big red tail I took in at my local place
