give it a lot of hiding places and it should be fine.

Nah. The red tail is about the size of his oscar. As long as it can hide from their aggression that can show itself from time to time I think its safe.

So in my New 55 gallon tank i will have
one 7 inch pink oscar
one 4 inch red tiger oscar
one 9 inch albino oscar
one 7 inch green severum (i might buy more severums so the original stops being mean)
and one 7 inch red tailed black shark

I plan to add some more but have to choose the right ones first

the oscars, the severum has occupied a pipe in the tank and gets a lil mad if the oscar trys to go in but their fine other wise

Hmmm strange. Severums are usually much more timid fish than oscars. But I guess it just goes to show how big a difference cichlids shows from individuall to individuall.

this one is pretty timid it hides in the pipe like non stop maily coz it only has one eye i think but when sumthing tries to get in the pipe it will take it on even the 9 inch oscar

oK. That sounds like a Severum (cichlid(. I thought it was being a bully from your post:

(i might buy more severums so the original stops being mean)
