Is Oscars compatable with Blood Parrots?
 
I have a pair of blood parrot in my 5ft tank(60"X15"X24").Now i want to keep 6 Oscars with them as tank mates.My parrot is 3" in size and Oscars i would be purchasing is 2" in length.
Is it good to keep them altogether?Would they fight with eachother?
The aquarium shopkeeper told me to keep 8 Oscars in the tank without any other mates!!
Which one do you prefer-
1.4 oscars with 2 parrots?
2.8 oscars without any mate?

Any other recommendation also welcomed:-)

Find a new shop to get advice from, your tank isn't big enough for 3 oscars let alone 8 and if you were to try mixing then eventually the oscars will kill your parrots - Read the profile on oscar they are very aggressive and very large as adults
