Tank Mates

Ive had my tank running for almost 8 months now and ive only had 2 fish occupy it. The first is a Oscar Cichlid who is about 8-10" long and a Feather-Fin Catfish who is pretty big himself being 8". They have gotten along pretty well and only chase each other every once in awhile. I want to introduce some new fish into the tank but im not sure what to get that could be a good tank mate with these two. The Oscar Cichlid can be very agressive sometimes especially when I feed them. I don't want to buy the wrong fish and end up seeing it die. Any suggestions?

How large is the tank? What type of filtration? if the tank is large enough, you might consider a blue acara.they are very nice looking fish and not as aggressive as some of the cichlids.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
