I have an 8 inch oscar and a 9 inch pleco in a 75 gallon and they been in there for 5 months. for some reason the oscar has to be an ass and attack the pleco. My question is there a way to funnel my oscar aggression. I do not feed live foods. I need good awnsers not irrational ones. Thx for the help

As I am sure you have read, the recommendation for a single large Oscar is a 75g tank, to itself. Your Oscar has claimed the entire tank as his own, doesnt want or need any other fish with him. You may have an exceptionally aggressive Oscar, wont have any tankmate in any size tank. You really have no option other than remove the pleco, leave your Oscar by itself.


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

Yep some Oscars just will not share the tank with any of fish even if you got a bigger tank he still may not but up with tank mates.
