How big is your aquarium, and the cichilid is a peacock of some sort I want to say.

It looks like a Aulonocara nyassae, which is a peacock cichlid. They come from Lake Malawi and should really be in harder water.

80 gallon is okay for the oscar and the peacock, although they both require different water parameters, so they can't be with each other
