Wow, love your setup and unusual combination of fish. Would love to see some pictures of the new fish.

Yes not the usual tank of cichlids. I've found that almost any freshwater fish, (75-80 degrees) are compatible with cichlids (oscars included). The key is to start with small cichlids, 2-3 inches, and add fish with them. I've had tanks with full grown oscars and small community type fish. I like to call myself the fish whisperer.

lol I have seen some pretty strange fish combos on youtube. Oscars with Angels. Arowanas with Discus.


(love this tank)

Catfish ended up making it. It was weird, I just gave him a tap and he came to life.
