75 Gallon Tank Questions about tank mates

Tyler0220

I am planning on getting an oscar for my 75 gallon. I was thinking maybe silver dollars or a convict with it but still looking for ideas. My main question is what's a good bottom feeder that can be with an oscar? Only fish I could find an alligator pleco but not sure if the oscar could eat it.

Maybe if you got it some time before the oscar and give it a chance to grow so the oscar can't fit it in it's mouth. At least that is what i would try, anyway.

The Oscar will eat anything that he can fit and try to fit in his mouth.

Clown loach, Raphael Catfish, Sailfin Pleco, Common Pleco, and Synodontis Angelicus all get too big to be eaten by an oscar
I would love those but the tank is only a 75 gallon and I cant upgrade it so I was looking for a catfish/pleco that is big enough to not get eaten and small enough to fit in a 75

Raphael Catfish are small enough for a 75. Clown Loach and Synodontis Angelicus might also be small enough. Despite many people saying clown loaches get up to 12 inches, in aquariums I only see them get about 7-10 inches.
