A 100 gallon is the minimum for the oscars alone. Much less adding more to it. If you want oscars I wouldn't recommend doing anything else.
I don't see a problem with the 2 bichirs and 12 silver dollars alone there.

Maybe instead do some BP or a severum instead? Slightly smaller, but still a good visuals impact. Speaking of which, theres many different types of cichlids that would work! EBA, convicts, firemouths would be some great alternatives.

What about jack dempsey
I personally would say no, but others may disagree. They highly aggresive, so any other fish sharing their tank can just be a punching bag...

So i can only keep oscar. Can i atleast get one bichir
Only keep, or is only willing to keep?

You could try it out, i would suggest getting a smaller oscar and then getting 2 bichirs - they are social... - and fingers crossed. Any aggression, and either the bichirs or oscars are out IMO - have a backup tank!

Yes, you can plant lucky bamboo. Just remeber that they need to have their leaves above the water surface...

I would suggest against the SD... many have said otherwise...

IMO, bichirs are social fish and appreciate the company of their own kind. I would get multiple to keep then happy.
