Okay will take a note of that! What are the common misconceptions they may have already told me?
Well not sure if they told you this but, your red tailed catfish will eat just about anyone in that tank. You will have to upgrade to over 100gallons alone for just the oscars. Your tank is extremely over stocked.
I had a 55gallon with 2 oscars, clownknife and a bichir. Needless to say I did not upgrade soon enough and my oscars killed my 13inch clown knife she grew from 6inches to 13 in a matter of only a few months. I would refrain from purchasing any other fish and save your pennies for a VERY large tank or consider taking some back to your lfs.

Just my opinion though :)
