Could i have this combo

I have a 75 gallon aquarium. It's being filtered by a emperor 400. It currently house 1 jack Dempsey, 1 gold severum, 1 jack Dempsey/ Texas hybrid, 1 tiger Oscar, and 1 albino red Oscar. Could I add another albino red Oscar so that the less aggressive Oscar isn't miserable like I read he could be.

I have read that if you have 2 oscars, you need at least 125 gallons.

There is no chance...You are already have enough fish to a fill a 180gal much less a 75. Honestly I would start re-homing the majority of your fish due to aggression,water quality,underfiltration and fish health. I know this sounds harsh but it's the truth.

If you tripled your filtraion like running a Fluval FX5 or 2 Fluval 405's you could try to keep 2 oscars with nothing else or the 2 Jack's and severum. The problem with 2 oscars if they turn out to be both male one wil leave in a box.

I wouldn't attempt it. Aggression would peak, and not to mention the bioload. Just like Hukit mentioned.
