Hi. So i have a 130 gallon tank with 1 oscar. 1 sailfin pleco. 1 bristle nose and a firemouth cichlid. My oscar is a female as some of you may know. Im thinking very seriously about putting a male in there. I'll get a small one to stop too much aggression. What advice can you give me? Im hoping that I can get them to breed. So the female is a red tiger. Should te male be the same?

Sensible thinking. You certainly don't want a breeding pair of Oscars to add to what you already have :-) beautiful looking tank by the way

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)
