I don't know the size of your parrots so it's hard to say how big the bichirs need to be to not be food.
Give them at least the ability to hit 5-6 inches and too thick for a parrot to eat. That's good to feed them only prepared, not live unless you are doing worms. This adjusted stock should work if you move them around and pay close attention to the behavior of all the fish.
As long as they are fluorescent lights, water sprite and water wisteria (riccia too) should do fine floating. Might give them something like Flourish Comprehensive to give them additional nutrients so they grow out to accommodate your growing fish.
