They also use sonar so if your tank is too small for them they get stressed out and die.

I have never kept an oscar but everytime i see anything about one its always good, think i might make that my next fish i get lol...
you are talking about a knife fish here right? as the elephant noses also use electrical impulses with there mouth to find things in the substrate.

Ye I was, i heard that too my lfs got some EN in but i told them about my BGK and they said it would not be a good match as they both use a form of sonar and they would interfere with each other (I think it was something like that).
