Hi! As some of you know I have a 130 gallon aquarium and I was thinking “could I add one more fish?” So the current stocking is:

- 1 Blood parrot cichlid (8 inches)
- 1 tiger Oscar. (7.5-8 Inches)
- 1 marbled kissing goramie (5-6 inches)
- 1 red tail shark (4 inches)
- 3 lace catfish (ranging from 3-7 inches)
- 2 pictus catfish (6 inches)
- 1.bristle nose pleco (3 inches)
- 1 common pleco (6 inches)
- 1 firemouth cichlid (3 inches)
- 1 albino tiger Oscar (not actually in the tank yet, he is still growing)

The tank dimensions are 4ft by 2 ft by 2ft
I do 3 water changes a week
Water parameters are stable
There is a 40 gallon sump

And I figure I probably can’t add more but I just wanted to check because there are a few fish I would love to get for the tank

P.S. here is a pic of the tank (it is a little foggy because I am cleaning the sump):

EDIT: if I could get a fish, how big could it be?

Well.....I would say, it would have to be pretty big, so it doesn’t get eaten!! Nice tank BTW! What would you want to add? Post a list of what you would want to add please!!

Hi! I was actually going to ask about what fish you would recommend! I was thinking about green terrors, maybe some sort of bichir, I don’t really know, what would you suggest?

Green Terrors would be a hard no IMO, but as long as you got one that's mostly grown up you could do a bichir. I'd go with a senagalI bichir since they're not too huge and are pretty easy to get

If you want the bichir to grow faster, make sure it gets bloodworms or blackworms everyday

I would get a red Oscar so that way I would have:
- 1 albino tiger Oscar
- 1 tiger Oscar
- 1 red Oscar

(I have a albino Oscar in a grow out tank right now)
