Wanting tank mate for adult Red Oscar

I recently lost my adult albino Oscar and I am wondering what I can put in my tank that my Adult Red Oscar wont try to eat. Currently, I have a 75 Gal tank with the Oscar and a 14" Pleco. What will get along with them?

Sorry to tell you but IMHO I would leave that tank alone. You have two huge fish in a 75 gallon, if it was larger then I would suggest another fish, but someone may come behind me and recommend something.
How often do you do WC's with that 14in. pleco?

I agree - the big oscar and huge pleco produce a huge amount of waste, even for a 75g, so you're pretty much at your stocking limit unless unless you add more filtration and start doing water changes more often. You could possibly try something like a school of giant danios.
