I am going to get a extra 40 gallon, and i am wondering if i could keep an oscar or jack dempsey or what.

I would like a personable and smart fish like an oscar, but 40 gallons is too small i guess.

people say oscars need a 55 gallon, but i was thinking that 40 gallon breeder has a bigger footprint, i was wondering if that mattered

A Shortbody Flowerhorn
A Green Terror
One pair 0f Blood Parrots
A Parachromis Loisellei
A Pair of Pink Convicts(Not so personable) but you can see interesting breeding behavior
A Jack Dempsey
A Pair of blue acars

All these fishes actually have become personable to me. Except the Convicts(they always lived in their world). But flowerhorn really wins by a hugeee... margin.
