Uaru Fernandesyepezi - NO they require low pH of 5.5 which is too low for the convict (lowest 6)
fire eel - NOT a beginners fish and need a well established tank.
Needle nose gar - NO, needs a 6ft length tank and is too timid for the JD.
convict - YES, would work.
leopoldi ray - too timid for the JD and Oscar...will be dead quickly.
cobalt blue lobster - nice snack food for the JD and Oscar so NO.
leopard pleco- No as the JD and Oscar will not leave it much to eat which can starve it. Look at the Spotted/Striped Raphael catfish instead (it has a hard covering and can withstand the temperament of the Oscar and JD.)
Getting them small and growing them up together DOES NOT work long term, it is programmed in the fishes genes about aggression etc, I am not saying it doesnt work entirely but it seldom does.
Look at Aequidens 'goldsaum'/'silversaum (Green Terrors or GT's) as potential tank mates as well. They can easily hold there own.
What are the dimensions (Length, Width and Height) of you tank?
