What size tank should I get if i want atleast 2 oscars and maybe a couple other tank mates?
I am aware of the size and aggressiveness of oscars. I was thinking maybe clown loaches and pacu? idk, give me some input
I agree with 100gal for two Oscars, bigger if you want anything else in the tank. Oscars & Clown Loaches are a try it & see proposition. I know some people that have done it without any great problem but I also know people who have tried & had it fail spectacularly. Oscars tend to be rather curious about other fish & it can be a bit more than the Clowns can deal with sometimes. Pleco & Doradid species tend to be better choices in an Oscar tank than the more vulnerable Loaches. Other large, mildly aggresive cichlids make for good Oscar tankmates given enough room in the tank. Things like Green Terrors, Salvini & Jack Dempseys usually work well given adequate tank size & good decor layout.
