The only suggestion I have is place the Goldfish in another aquarium. You also have to be concerned about the Senegal Bichir getting enough to eat. It's not worth over feeding that will make water quality issues.

+1. I’d do what was suggested and separate the fish.

Beside separating them because the goldfish are gluttonous, and are not tropical fish (like the others)
Feeding goldfish carnivore pellets is a waste because goldfish are not carnivores, they are omnivores that will do better on a varied ingredient pellet made for omnivores, which is probably less expensive and better suited for their dietary needs.

As you probably know, goldfish should not be kept with tropical fish. At raised temperatures they will be putting a huge load on your filter and Will very quickly outgrow any tropical tank, if not in size then in equivalent tropical fish load. Put the goldfish in an outdoor pond where they belong or do the best by them and pass them on to someone with a pond, then you can do the best by the fish you have or even get more.
