This isn't true.Good luck with that. Your list isn't compatible... The tiger Oscar can only be with fish it's size or bigger because they bully and eat smaller fish. If you like big fish then do an American cichlids tank each of those fish would be around 8"
This is not accurate either.Acara is too small to be with an Oscar. Oscars get 1 ft while Acaras get 5 inches. You'd want to keep near same size and aggression with cichlids.
And that is what I said too for the size of tank. But people hear someone wants an Oscar and the first thing people on forums, (especially people on forums who have never actually kept these fish) and the freak out and say the Oscar will eat everything else in the tank. It's just not true. Oscars are honestly not aggressive. They are a medium size cichlid that is all to common and almost always kept in a tank that is way to small to keep it with other fish. They have gotten a bad reputation that they do not deserve. It just kind of gets to me when the misconceptions about them are perpetuated.BDpups, sorry for giving inaccurate information. I was researching for this guy and many of them had oscars killing smaller cichlids so I just said that it wouldn't be compatible because I don't want his oscar end up killing other fish...
Like Junebug said, that's similar to what I found from researching.
Oh yeah, a nice big pleco wouldn't be in the Oscar's way@pelli7358
You could go with the acara, a convict, and a firemouth for your cichlids. Tiger or Red ruby barbs for a school of fish. Then an African butterfly for an odd ball for the top. A smaller fancy pleco would work too.
Or go with a single oscar and a pleco. An L600 would work for your pleco in a 90. Very colorful pleco.
Or the oscar and a couple of senegal bichirs.
What's your filtration?
