That will not work. Maybe keeping them in there when they are 1", but any bigger needs a bigger tank. They produce a ton of waste, and Oscars reach 14"+. One needs a 75G tank at full size, two would need 125G+ at full size. Also, Blood Parrots reach 10" long and poop as much as a 20-30" fish, so you are looking at incredible filtration methods to keep up with even if you get a tank big enough for everything to house lomg-term, which would be over 150, if not 175 gallons.
Blood Parrots alone need at least a 55G with very good filtration long-term. How big is your BP now?
