So I'm sad to,say my 4 year old Oscar has finally died due to a tumor in,his side it's been,about 2 weeks and now I guess I'm looking,for something to replace him,with. As of right now it's a 75 gallon with 1 feather fun catfish and,1 male very aggressive convict. So I would appreciate any possible tankmate ideas just throw some out,there.

I am just curious. Does your cichlid attack the catfish?

Any type of cichlids fine. Try to buy one to a similar size of your convict, if not try and get some nice hiding places for him. Another convict is a good idea if you wanna raise fry, it's great fun! And is very, very easy.

Get a couple of cryptoheros, which are cousins of the convicts. Some very cool examples: panamemsis, nanoletus, and saijicas, to name a few. Great looking fish and better suited to life in a 75 with a convict and your cat than another oscar would be.

HEre is a shot of my Panamemsis:
