Bichir tankmate?

Hello. I am getting a 120 or 125 gallon tank. I plan on putting a bichir in there along with a freshwater puffer. Any thoughts on which puffer would work? What about also adding discus or chiclids? Maybe even a school if small tetras if they are too small and fast for the bichir and puffer. Any thoughts? Any good tankmates I've missed?

The only freshwater puffers I know are pea (way to small for your tank) and potato puffers (about 7" but not fish friendly)
Potato puffers stay near the bottom as do bichir so I wouldn't risk it.
Basically keep the bichir with anything too big for it to eat
Oscar's or other larger cichlids might work.
