300 gallon stocking help

I currently have two tiger oscars and one albino oscar, one blood red parrot and one jack Dempsey all small still under 4 inches. In about two months roughly ill have 300 gallon 72x36x27 tank setup and cycled for them. Could I add an electric blue jack Dempsey and a green terror to the tank or would that be overstocked and or to many aggressive fish? I will have a lot of caves made from creek rock and few live plants if the oscars allow them to stay planted anyway. Any advice would be appreciated thanks..

I don't know what you should stock with, but your tank is actually about 330 gallons.

GT will be good. EBJDs Dont handle stress very well I would not add them to that tank. What about a bunch of Firemouths. I always though a bunch of firemouths would look good with oscars. They are smaller but do well standing there own ground.

Huh I don't know they call it 300 gallons maybe they subtract gallons because it has two corner over flow boxes taking up space? I hadn't really considered the firemouth. Is there a pink variation to the green terror? My wife sees pink ones online but I have never seen one in lfs or at any of the online fish vendors I've looked at.

Some plecos would be nice. A jaguar cichlid would be stunning.
