should i try senegal bichrs again or something else?

They did not starve to death and the tank is not too tall. If they were not eating it was because of a problem, not because they were unable to get enough to eat. Sometimes fish die and we know the cause, but many times we do not. I know you want to pin their deaths on something, but you are barking up the wrong trees.
It seems like you've been having a lot of problems with your tanks lately - I wouldn't get more fish until you get a better handle on the ones you already have.
what do you mean a better handle? ive done everything i learned with my tanks. water changes weekly, double the filteration. the only problem i have right now are the goldfish dieing which doesnt relate to this at all.
I don't know, just seems like you've had one problem after another. It's certainly possible that I've got the wrong impression.
Bichirs are one of the toughest fish out there. They are not prone to diseases, but that doesn't mean they can't get sick and die. I don't think they need to be grown out first.
How long did you quarantine for?
i cant remember. it was more than weeks though.
i was thinking of doing one of these. would these work?
1-large albino senegal bichr
i was also thinking of a Polypterus Delhezi
So? I want to put in an order tomorrow at my lfs

Instead of buying more fish right now, stick with what you have and see if you can go more than a month without problems. Also Bichirs are not exactly compatable with some of the fish you've got in there.
Firstly if you want a pleco you can't have a bichir. It's a known issue where plecos will munch on a bichir's slime coat. You also plan to have tetras? It's one thing if you are like me and your have full grown Senegalus Bichirs that have shown you they don't want to eat live fish, but you want to get unknowns where you won't know their temperament and try them with fish that at full growth may end up being a snack.
Don't do it. Until you get down for a good length of time running your tanks with zero issues don't get more fish.
