Would 2 Oscars be good with 3 blood parrots in a 155 gal tank?

No, thats overstock. 2 Oscars are fine, by themselves. What are the dimensions of this tank? Footprint is often more important than volume.


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

actually, the tank size can accommodate them for a while but nor for life...
those fish are all pooing machines, sooner you will have problem on water maintenance...
further, 3 parrot fish with sharp teeth will become aggressive and will bully the oscars...

You can do either 1 oscar and 3 BP or just 2 oscars in a 155g.
