keeping multiple oscars together in same tank can be hit or miss. The first point id like to bring up is the size of the tank , as im sure your aware .. oscars get big ....3 of them in a 90 gal tank without any other tank mates would still be over stocked due to the sheer size potential of each oscar,also depending on decor ( yes decor takes up space in the aquarium ) your oscars wont have much room to swim freely. the next point id like to bring up is each oscar can be very different in its willingness to accept other tank mates, some oscars do great with cichlids of the same size others wont accept a single other tank mate regardless of the species. that being said cichlids of the same size with the same size potential and larger plecos seem to do the best with the least amount of incidents.
