    I think your plecos would be okay with your oscar, depending on the temperament of your oscar. Some are meaner than others. As far as the blood parrot, I'm afraid the 20 gallon will have to be upgraded as soon as you can get a bigger tank. My research tells me that they can grow up to 8 inches, which is say too big of a fish for a 20 gallon tank. How big is he now?

    Many people put Their Oscars in the tank with other fish. Be careful because you might wake up with just one fish that oscar. Do alittle reseach before you decide thats all. I put a Oscar in my tank with 2 blood parrots and the oscar ended up floating at the top with his eyes missing
