Dojos from what I understand are pretty mild mannered but the Oscar might not like sharing his tank with the Dojos. I would say they are not compatible.

huh well the oscar is still a baby and both loaches are fully grown (10 in and 8 in) but is there any chance that the slimy coating on the dojo loaches will offer any uhh.... how can I word this?.... will it offer any distaste to the oscar? kinda like catfish skin :-\

Nope, in fact when he gets bigger he will probably... (how shall I say this) relish a little dojo for lunch

Well the loaches are happy and thank you very much butterfly for your help, I even had enough room to add 2 more loaches. I did some more research this time on catfish and i'm am just gonna put a plecoo in there cause its what my friend keeps with his Oscar and my dad said and I quot, "If your Oscar is stupid enough to bite a fish with barbs on it then let it die", sounds a little crule but I don't wanna care for a stupid fish....... maybe a dumb one but not a stupid one.

Anyways my loaches are very happy so thank you again butterfly.

Your most welcome glad to hear you were able to get more dojos.
Gunnie has a pleco with her Oscars and it does fine.
