What off this list do you think will work the best and could I get any breeding pair fish to go with the oscar and featherfin thanks.
I can't answer your question as I am new to fishy love. I love cichlids though, and that tank sounds great! Are you going to bother with plants? My cichlids are still little and have left them alone aside from occasionally playing under my crypt leaves. Not sure what kind they are, as the label on the tank just said "African cichlids". One yellow with brown stripes, and a brown with brown stripes. I'm not a fan of Oscars, but they've been popular, especially with men. Jacks are beautiful. I have a Jewel in with a couple of blood parrots right now. He/she is very docile for a cichlid.
