Aqadvisor had tea cup ray as its own species though. Says it tops out at 14", but would be too big for my tank.

Just remember that is a 12-14" disc not long. In an 18" wide tank that doesn't leave much room to play. I'd say 14-24" depending on ray species.

Yeah. I'm not very interested in rays anyway.

It's max size yes but it takes years to get that big given the right diet and conditions. Mine never got that big btw is was about 9 inches for years

You should still prepare for max size before buying anything.

Don't know about the bichir. I thought lead fish were mainly hidden, I'd like fish I see a lot. I'm leaving toward rocket gar/freshwater barracuda.

Rocket gar and freshwater barracuda and hujeta gar are all the same fish. Different names.
