It looks like me and my father will be going on Monday morning to pick up a 75 gallon tank and i would like to keep one of these fish in it. The thing is at the same time i would also (and my mom agrees to the point of saying what good is a tank that big with only 1 fish) like to keep something else in with which ever i decide. I was thinking something along the lines of silver dollars or rainbow fish, though I'm hesitant on the rainbow fish as i think it would be pretty cool to keep a tank with an all Amazonian stock.
What i was thinking was 1 Green Severum/Oscar (whichever we decide), 6 spotted silver dollars (would LOVE redhooks but im thinking they probably get to big for a 75 gallon), 1 bn pleco and maybe some kind of catfish like 4 pictus?
*edit* i also thought of possibly putting a pair of convicts in but for that i need to know A) if i just let nature take its coarse would the convict fry end up being feeders for the other fish or would the parents protect them until they where able to live in the tank and B) would they be to aggressive after breeding to be kept in the same tank as the other fish without someone getting seriously wounded or killed?
