I've got a sole baby Oscar (2.5 inches) in my 75 G tank, and plan on adding 4 or 6 dither fish - probably silver dollars, though I'm not sure. Plus a bottom feeder - probably a striped raphael (sp?). Given that stocking level, can my tank support another Oscar to keep my current one company? I've heard that Oscars get lonely - which sounds pretty anthropomorphic - and I'm VERY sensitive to overstocking a tank. Still, I know these animals are VERY intelligent and maybe this "lonely" business isn't so silly. Thoughts?

PS On another note - do I have enough filtration? I've got 2 Penguin 350s and a cannister filter (Eheim 2215). thanks!

GalaxyGirl - that's a TERRIBLE story about the pike. What in the world are people thinking? Re: bottom roamer, I know that many pleco's can get pretty huge and they are pretty messy to boot. Any suggestions on smaller plecos (yet not so small as to become a meal when my Oscar gets bigger)?

And I hear ya loud and clear re: 75 not being big enough for two Oscars. 'Nuff said. Still, it would be nice for some color/flash to get a small set of schooling fish - is this still possible without overcrowding in a 75 w/one Oscar and a medium sized plec? I assume my filtration is ok, right?
Tanks! (pun intended)
