I have 4 Senegal Bichers in a 125 gallon tank. Driftwood, rocks, plants.
When the largest Bicher was about 6" and the others closer to 4-5" they ate 3 Clown Loaches that were 3" long, and a Cory barbatus (an aggressive Cory) that was about 2" long. They ate Guppy culls very willingly, stalking them in the upper areas of the tank, hiding in the plants until they could catch the Guppies.
Current tank mates are larger Clown Loaches, Filimentosa Barbs, a 'Common' Pleco (I do not actually think it is one of the more commonly available 'commons', it is too small), an adult Bristlenose Pleco and a catfish that looks a bit like a Pim, but is a lot larger.
The Bichers are 12" max down to about 8".
I almost never see them near each other, but they do not seem to fight. The Barbs do fight with each other, though.
