I would say no as well. For 1, Oscars can get 15", while African cichlids get 4-5". I would think the African cichlids would be eaten after the Oscar gets bigger than them. You need to have an equally sized fish and aggression, as an Oscar, which sometimes doesn't work either. Oscars are South American cichlids, so they can be unpredictable. Also African Cichlids should only be kept with other African cichlids. Some good tank mates for Oscars are, other Oscars, Green Terrors, Jack Dempseys, fish with decent size and aggression.
