I know a Senegal Bichir eats fish like neon tetras and guppyies. What is the biggest fish that a Sengal Bichir would not eat?

Anything small enough to be consumed in one gulp is game.

Fish size that can be eaten will depend on the size of the fish, not the species.

I'm not aware of any aquarium fish that, as babies, are too big to eat.

I would suggest doing some research on the fish or any fish you want. I do that with any fish I haven’t seen before.

They will try to eat the kuhlis.

I kept Australian rainbows with mine no problem.
I think the smallest you would get away with are rosy Barb size.
