Absolutely not! The Oscars will make mincemeat of the angels...

That is too small of a tank for that. In a larger tank it could work but not in an 85. Agression aside you really should only have one oscar in the tank.

that wont work. RARELY will a angel and a oscar live together. the only times are 1/1000 when the oscar and angel grow up together.

85g is only big enough for 2 oscars alone too

Cocoa you can't put 2 Oscars in a 85 gallon. Oscars and angels together almost never results in a happy ending.

Two Oscars can't be in an 85 gallon tank? I would have thought they could. But Oscars are dirty fish and angels need pristine water conditions and higher temps. And even then, compatibility issues would be a problem.

85G IS POSSIBLE for 2. just make sure you can do weekly 40% water changes and have a good canister filter like a large RESUN, or a XP4

If you want to keep the nitrates below 25ppm...
