    Hi so I wanted to ask what else should put into my tank with an oscar. I know most will say just the oscar, but I know I can get away with 1 or maybe 2 more cichlids just wondering and wanna hear the input before I buy another fish.

    I personally would put maybe another oscar and call it a day. I'm not sure what else can go with them. Maybe some sort of catfish. I'm not 100% sure a 75gallon will be large enough for two oscars tho. You may want to consider putting a canister filter on it if you don't already have one.

    FH and Parrot.jpg I have a Bonsai Flowerhorn and two Parrot fish in with my Oscar. They get along Marvelously. Although, I am partial to Bonsais as you can tell. Two Oscars might be too much, they are such little pigs. I don't know about yours, but when I feed mine food flies everywhere... it even comes out his gills. I can't imagine cleaning up after two of them.

    Thanks!

    I have them in a 60 currently. There is plenty of room for now, but I will be moving them up to a 100 after I get my tax refund. I have had them all together since they were little guys. They started in a 40, went to a 60 and now with some good luck I will have them in a 100. But a 75 is big enough to keep 2 or three in for a very long time.
