    So I have a flowerhorn his name is Midas and he's in a 75gal all by himself. I really wanna put another fish in with him. And I know it will need to be close to his size and be able to hold there own against him. Midas is about five inches or so. I was thinkin about getting an oscar close to his size. I know people have had trouble and I know flowerhorns in general are aggressive but I feel like a 75gal to one fish is a waste and I'm open to other options besides oscars any ideas?

    I wouldn't put anything with him, I know someone who tried various other large cichlids & it killed every one of them.

    Well that wouldn't surprise me Midas is pretty aggressive. He's the first flowerhorn I've ever had so I wasn't sure and I wanted to ask before I bought anything to put in with him

    Good morning,

    Agreed, I would recommend the Flowerhorn have the 75g's all to him/herself.
