More oscars. If you go with firemouth or convict they can be more aggressive if not more than a jack dempsey. If you do decide make absolutely sure that the firemouth or convict are much smaller than your Oscar. Oscars are slow moving and just dont chase well by other cichlids, which usual result in their premature death. Also if u go with more oscars you increase your odds of having a successful adult sized oscar for the future. I've been keeping cichlids for 20 years, they are great fish once you get to know some of their quirks.

i'd go with only one of the three...too many possible conflicts...plus i've heard that oscars are notorious for breaking glass heaters
