I have a 75 gallon tank with 2 oscars in it. They’re about 3 inches long. I recently got an offer for a 5” Jack Dempsey Cichlid for free. Would it be okay to live with the Oscars? I’m worried that because the Jack Dempsey is much bigger it will hurt the Oscars

Oscars are south American and not African. A 75 is only large enough for a single adult Oscar. I do not suggest adding a jack Dempsey.

Oscars grow rapidly they will outgrow the JD in no time and I would be worried about the JD surviving not the oscars lol
