    Welcome to Fishlore.com. I split your question off onto a topic of its own so it wouldn't get lost in the other post. I hope someone who has Oscars will see it this way.

    Welcome again, It is good to know you and hope you can find some friends for your fish.

    Welcome to FishLore! I'm afraid I would not get any tankmates for your oscar until you get a larger tank. You will need at least a 55 gallon tank for the oscar alone. Although it doesn't happen in a year, Oscars can grow to 14 inches long, so please consider upgrading your tank asap. They usually grow about an inch a month the first year but not always. It's great to have you with us! We would love to see pictures of your little guy! ;)
