| || | Question about overcrowded oscar tank
Hello, this is my first post here so be gentle
I Have a 55 gal tank that has an Adult female Oscar in it. The only other inhabitant is an 8 inch Pleco. The two fish seem to live in peace, since the pleco has a large log and a hollow rock to hide in. Even when he is out ant about the Oscar does not seem to be interested in him because of his size.
My question is, a friend of mine has an Oscar she wants to get rid of, it is about 3/4ths the size of mine, so large enough that it couldn't be eatin. I am not sure if it is a male or female Oscar. I would like to get it and put it with my Oscar, however I am not sure if My tank is big enough since they are both rather large fish. I am not sure how they will respond to each other either, I certainly do not want to lose one of them.
Can anyone give me there thoughts on this?
