Well congrats, first of all! :)
Had to giggle a bit, I have that too that I mean to get a bigger tank for my existing fish and end up with new fish as well for some reason.

About the pleco, do you mean 5-6" full grown size or what it would be now? Some pleco species tend to become big monsters that might outgrow even a 90 gal tank, plus they tend to make a hell of a mess. Otherwise I wouldn't see why not.
Same about the other Oscar. Can of course happen they won't get along but that's bad luck then :P With two Oscars you're at the limit then but guess you know that.

If I were a guy, I\'d have probably needed only 30% of the amount of words to say this

Had to look up what a black pleco is now, lol. It's just a common Hypostomus plecostomus, right?
Well those get quite huge so I guess it's anyway better to put it in with the Oscar(s) than keeping it in the kids' tank. Have fun tank cleaning!:lol:

I have banned myself from going to LFS too. You end up with too many fish for your tanks and then you cant decide which ones to send back

I can't get no sleep

good on u.

good idea is to decide exactly what u are going to setup in a tank,write it down and be specific.

and keep to that piece of paper.otherwise you end up with overstocked tanks or 2many tanks.i a softy and cant get myselff to return one of my fish the LFS.

Adding another Oscar to your tanks existing one can be fraught with difficulties. Oscars are territorial and will normally not take kindly to sharing a tank with a new comer. You also might end up with two males which is a recipe for disaster.
