Joeygoose created the topic: What else can i put in with my oscar

Hello i am new to the forums and new to the hobby. So i have a 75 gallon tank that has one oscar whos about 4-5 inches and 2 convict cichlids and a pleco. I am running a fluval fx6 and 2 emperor 400 hob filters. I was wondering what other kind of fish and how many i can add to the tank without overstocking too much. I do 50% water changes every 4 or 5 days and had the tank running for about 3 months and everyone is doing well. Some aggresion between the convicts but nothing major. i am planning on getting a 125 tank by the end of the summer and may move the oscar to that in the future. Any/all advice is most welcome. I read a lot on the internet and love learning about this hobby.

Hello and welcome to OFL. As it stands your 75 is overstocked. The recommendation for a single Oscar, living alone is a minimum 75g tank. Your planned 125 will hold all the fish ok, aggression issues aside. End of summer will be stretching your chances, as Oscar may well be in the 8in range by then,


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

Thank you for the welcome and your response. I guess I'll hold off then until I get my 125 and move the Oscar to that. I really enjoy watching the convicts too so I think the 75 will be a convict tank. Maybe I'll look for a used 125 so I can get it sooner.
