Will dinosaur bichir get along with African cichlid?

Yes. I have a Dinosaur Bichir in an African Cichlid community tank and it gets along very well. The only problem I have found is at feeding time. The African Cichlids sometimes get in such a frenzy that they eat most of the food before it gets down to the bottom. I have to watch the tank to make sure he gets food because if he isn't paying attention he'll miss his meal unless I add more.
