First topic message reminder :

I have a fish tank with 2 medium sized oscars, a little but bigger convict ciclid and a common pleco and a large royal pleco. And I want a arrowana. Would they all be compatible? And if not any suggestions of fish I could get to add to my tank.

yep, no way an arrowanna would go in a 55 permenantly. unless it is just a baby and you have at least a 125 to go into once it outgrows the 55 which would take all of about 6 months. I posted on the general fish forum asking if anyone was able to keep it in a community tank, and people had great answers. I have a 55, and would love an arrowanna. They grow very fast. But if you a tank large enough that it can be transfered to when it outgrows the 55, or someone else does that would take it, then I would say go ahead. But keep in mind, they are aggressive fish, they will eat anything they can, which is why most of the time, you see arrowannas in tanks by themselves or with other AW's and not much else.

But man they are amazing fish if you have a large enough tank!

I had a friend with a 300G tank (GORGEOUS TANK) with 2 AW's in it, one that was 3 ft long, he was pretty massive, and that 300 gal tank was too small for him.

oscars are great in a 55 though. Tigars or reds are always good. they will outgrow it at somepoint, but you can have oscars, dependant on their size, in a 55 for 3 or 4 years. Also, catfish are good in 55's, spotted catfish are especially good. You would have to do a little research on catfish becuase some get very very large. But any cichlid, oscar or smaller catfish are typically good for 55's. Would love to see pics of your tank =)
