1 oscar, and 3 firemouths (or similar sized cichlids) for the 125g. Make sure all are the same sex. It's a pain dealing with aggression issues different when species of the opposite sex decide to become "pair" and get rid of other cichlids in the tank.

Ok, now I've got a handle on what I'm going to stock the tank with, and what type of substrate. Does anybody have any experience with the diy Styrofoam & concrete backgrounds ? I know I've got to take time and rinse , rinse, rinse it to get it to cure properly so I wouldn't have ph issues. But will it stand up to the abuse a boisterous fish like Oscars might give it long term ?
