Oscars will dig sometimes. Planted tanks and cichlids are not a good combination.

i had a 150 gallon with a young Arowana and a pair of oscars before rehoming all three. The Oscars constantly picked on the aro. And nipped his fins. Oscars, especially in pairs or more will cause mischief if allowed to.

I am not sure how Oscars and Arowanas would fare each other.
Here in Singapore, Oscars and Arowanas are always put together. Also put are Datnoids such as 3bar Indonesia Tiger and 4Bar IT etc. So that will fair good with Asian arowana. So I believe same is applicable to silver arowana too.
