Red Devil and Oscars Together?
I just put a 3 inch Red Devil and a 2 inch Albino Oscar in a 55 gallon tank. Will they be okay together?

You will need a filter capable of filtering/moving, six to eight times the volume of water the tank holds each hour. Example..55 gallons X 8 = 440 gallons per hour. I would consider to Emperor 400 Filters one on each end of the tank or Eheim canister filter such as the 2217. This will help keep the water clean between weekly 50 percent water changes that in my view will be necessary.
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
