would 2oscars 3sevs really be too much for a 220gal tank?
I really want my stock list to have
3red spot sevs
2albino oscars or one normal tiger one albino
jd
2rafs
plec and then my rainbow shark if he gets better (the plec and him had a fight and he came of worse but as per ususal he started it)

but I might need to drop an oscar but still I looking on aqadvisor and thinking this will be overstocked pretty quick.

I was thinking I might be able to get a vieja in there or texas aswell or maybe fh hmmm really got to think this one through

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

this is suggestion that I might go with



Ive dropped one oscar but inthe long run this will be overstocked. Im not too worried about the wc side thats not an issue I can do wc every 2days or every day etc my bath room is downstairs and I use a hose so its not too much hassle. But there might be other issues in the long run, aggression etc so might need to change these plans later on.

it's more of the aggression you have to worry about ... odd number of oscars is a disaster to happen, not saying it won't work out...but for the most part it wouldn't. Severums might be timid in the beginning, but full grown they are ass's - and very territorial.

i'm not sure where your JD come in this mix - sounds like they are pretty timid and will get picked on by your O's or Sev's.

but yes you are overstocked -

i would stay with 3 servs and 2 O's

i tried to mix flowerhorn in the community but had to removed him later on coz of aggression....
now my 220 gal is full of different oscars... i love it that way...

over stock... you can get away with it in having good filter and frequent water change..

imo you could do Oscar, JD and 3 Sevs. Forget the Syn and Tex, too rowdy, skip the Gibby pleco, MASSIVE waste producers. Raph cat could prob fit in as well, but common theme among keepers of these guys is you never see them.

lol, my bad J.. he's a keeper then. My 265 holds pretty well what you are asking about. Large Oscar, male JD, Rotkeil Sev pair, a Gold Sev, along with a common pleco, not the monstrous kind, Tinfoil barb and male Convict. Big Oscar pushes everyone out of her way, but not what I would call overly aggressive. The others move, no problem.

So think Im going to get some nice red spot sevs, the shop had normal ones but I want the red spot ones alot more colour.

Stock will be
2oscars
2/3 sevs
jd (I already own this fish thats why he is here)
2 rapheal cats
sailfin plec

plus rainbow shark or might sell this fish

the tank will be overstocked but think it should work and will be a nice tank
