    Have tank up and running, just waiting for cycle to complete.
    Stocking question.

    2 Oscar's
    2 acars
    Sun catfish.

    This ok in 125 you think?

    Hello. A 125 is good for one Oscar. That's what I keep my Oscar Big Boy in.

    I know you can have 1 oscar and a school of SD or a couple other cichlids in a 125...
    I plan on keeping 2, just didn't know if anyone with a little more knowledge has ever done a tank with 2 and some smaller tank mates....
    I am fine with 2 and the sun cat, just wondered.

    Anyone with any experience on keeping acara with oscars? Or think adding 2 acars or severums? As I said I am fine with just 2 Oscar's and a sun cat...just wondering...

    They should do fine together. I would make sure the acara have plenty of hiding spaces. They also generally say to make sure the fish are similar in size when first introduced.

    I had Oscars with convicts and they did fine together.

    There can be fighting which is to be expected with the cichlid family.
