New Oscar? Question

    Hi! I have a 130 with this stocking:
    - 1 tiger Oscar (8-9 inches)
    - 1 Blood parrot (8 inches)
    - 1 marbled kissing gourami (5-6 inches)
    - 1 fire mouth cichlid (3 inches)
    - 3 lace catfish (two of them are 6-7 inches and one is only 5 inches)
    - 2 pictus catfish (each about 7-8 inches long)
    - 1 common pleco (5-6 inches)
    - 1 albino Oscar (not added yet but he is almost ready to go in)

    Anyway. My friend (which I made a post about me teaching him about fishkeeping) thinks that his new Oscar isn’t doing well (he didn’t cycle his tank) and doesn’t want him to die. He asked me if I could take it (until he gets a big enough tank but I would almost bet he is just never going to do that). Do you think my 130 gallon tank could handle another Oscar? I have debating a bichir but I think ima put that with my flowerhorn. Think that would work (I keep the water quality pristine).

    I don’t think it’s a good idea. @DawnMichelle

    I love your compassion for your friends fish but, you’ve got your fins full at the moment... hahaha see what I did there...

    You’ve got quite a few fish in the 130. You should see if you can help him find a home for it.

    I had to get rid of a managuense when I moved and my local non chain pet store took him in for me. You can always call around to see if someone will take him in.
