Oscar/ciclid experience at petsmart
So I was out shopping today for some new fish. I go to Petsmart because they seem to have the best looking fish in the area. We do have a local owned pet shop, but she charges an arm and a leg for fish that look very unhealthy. Anyways, I went in to get 2 small oscars and a pleco. As i was standing waiting for the associate to get my fish, i found a small dempsey that i couldnt resist. So i told him i wanted the dempsey also, but he warned me not to get it that they would end up fighting. I told him that i have an oscar and a dempsey together. He really didnt believe me. I end up never believing the sales people. The "district manger" didnt know anything about doing aquatic plants. Now i usually go on here or research the internet before jumping into fish/project, but i always like knowing what they know. Most of the time it is completely wrong.
Now to my questions.
1) Do oscars and jack dempseys get along in the tank, or did i just end up with 2 really cool fish?
2) I have heard storied about really mean oscars, but none of mine (I have 7) are mean. Did i get lucky with all of mine, or are the storied not 100 percent real?
3) This is off topic, will red/albino/tiger oscars breed with each other?
Thanks for reading
I appreciate responses
