    I was wondering, what other cichlids could I put in with my oscar? I know oscars get 8-12'' and require some space but I was thinking on adding some fire mouths and maybe add 1 other fish. Any ideas?

    in my 4 ft tank i have two juvenille oscars (20cm and 15cm long), and two small female convicts and a small jewel cichlid. im not sure how long they will be able to stay in there in the long run but they are all getting along fine at the moment, they have been together for about three to four months. but i do have other tanks to move the smaller fish out if i have to.
    4ft cichlid community
    4ft community tank
    2ft endler guppy tank

    oscars get big and need lots of room. everyone i know recommends at least 55g per oscar, nothing smaller. you could maybe do a large pleco with him, but that would be pushing it....since they get so big too.


    plus oscars are very aggressive and will eat anything they can fit in their mouth.

    acutally its not 8-10in fish its really 12-14in+ fish. 55g is the MINIMUM for an oscar spacewise and water quality wise. They get VERY messy. The only thing you could add owuld be many a few small fish and they'd be eaten, anyhting big enough not to be eaten is to big to have with the oscar.
    55g: 1 Severum, 1 Raphael Catfish, 1 Syno Catfish

    5g: adopted goldfish..

    2.5g: crowntail betta
