Compatibility is never guaranteed w/ robust SA/CA cichlids. Most large cichlids do not appreciate the company of con or hetero specifics outside of breeding, & even then it can be "hit or miss".

Stocking levels for cichlids species like Oscars is always based on maximum adult size of species in question. A 75GL aquarium is sufficient for one Oscar only, regardless of current size.

The following is an article I wrote detailing what is entailed to be successful w/ Oscars:

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.

I agree with the above.

getting to Oscars to get along is a crap shoot no matter how you look at it whether it be two males to females a male and a female all depends on the temperament of the fish. But a 75gallon tank is only enough space for 1Oscar
