Just a question that I probably already know the answer to. Is there any other fist that can go with an Oscar in a 55 gallon tank. I know that if its possible it wouldn't be a cichlid, but just wondering if any other smaller fish would work.

If that is an established Oscar in that tank he may not allow tankmates of any kind besides the fact that a 55g is bare minimum for just a single Oscar with good maintenance.

With good maintenance you might get away with a small clean up cat like a raphael but really your fully stocked.

No. Not if you wish to be successful.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

From your intro post you are a few years into Oscar keeping? I am curious as to the overall condition of your fish. It should be over a foot long, actually longer than your 55 is wide. Should have a tank with an 18in width and 75+gal volume.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!
