I just like Oscars lol, I'm thinking to get a pair in the long run. But I don't wanna over stock.... Not sure what tank I'm getting for sure but. I think I will be this one as other customs I have found are 500 litres and £300 more.

So if I go JD, Oscar RAF do you think I should go for single fish. I just like the idea of a group but the research I find says you must have more than 4. I guess I don't really want to regime again its bad fish keeping in my book. And I feel bad for having to regime my 2reds and other fish when my plywood failed.

Could I go for a Texas? Or rd I would like some colour but than I run the risk that the Oscar will get bullied.

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

yes oscar will get bullied from texas or RD.

Get a Petenia splendida aka Red Bay Snook which can't do as much damage to the oscar or Caquetaia myersi/spectabile/kraussi.

Then there are the chocolate cichlids or many variations of the severum.

I hate my stupid tablet it really angers me, Re HOME grrrrrrrrrr why does it change the stupid thing frustrates me so much.

I want colour could try sevs there are some nice colours there.

Sigh would love a rd or Texas but I feel like something is missing without an Oscar. Like now my JD is lovely but he's boring lol

How many fish you thinking? I like rainbows could get a small group of them, I regret re homing them aswell

I think the rotkeil or red shoulder severum is a beautiful fish.

Vieja arent too personable when other cichlids are around. Ive been to many fish store with different types vieja, and they dont come to the front of the tank like oscars or severums do. My bifa spent the whole day just looking for food and moving gravel.

You could do an RD and Texas, but dont put the oscar with them. It will be on the losing end. If the oscar is the centerpiece, then you should stock cichlids that it can handle.

Green terrors are another choice, same with hecklii acaras. Then there are the commonly mislabelled Geophagus surinamensis, which tend to be abalios or altiferons.

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.
