Oscar with Bala's and Bichirs

Alright, so a small question. Can an Oscar live with bala sharks and bichirs? And should I get Oscar as a single or a pair? And what size of tank? I was thinking a 5 ft wide 90 gallon.

Of the balas are small enough to fit in an oscars mouth (which is big) he will eat them. Same goes with the bichir.

Sadly I speak from experience.

Thanks guys. The bichirs and Bala's are a few months old. The Oscar is only about 2.5 inches. But not small enough for the bichir.

If u put them together just make sure the bichir cant fit into the oscars mouth. My albino oscar is with a good 7 inch sengal bichir right now and they get along fine
