Oscar with blood parrot

Hello people. So I just got a blood parrot from the LFS which I put in with my Oscar. The Oscar is about 2.5" in size while the parrot is 4". They should be compatible right? The parrot is still getting adjusted to the aquarium.

I have 1 pr. of parrots with Oscars in the pond.
In a tank never!
In a tank Oscars only tolerate them selves. Meaning only one.
I did have once a red devil and Oscar share a tank but that was a rare understanding.
The only thing a Oscar usualy tolerates in a tank with it, is a large common plecto.

The Oscar is pretty small right now. I did observe today that whenever the Oscar goes near the parrot it chases it away. Otherwise the parrot doesn't seem to mind the Oscar.

I currently have only a community tank. But my friend has had a pair of oscars with some parrots. They did fine together.

I had my Oscar in a tank with some African ciclids and he never bothered any of them. I also just moved my Oscar and Africans in with my Flowerhorn and have no problems. My
FH established dominance right off and they all live nicely. In my experience oscars are terribly selfish eaters and will always try to eat everything in sight and bully the smaller ones. I'd just keep and eye on them.. best of luck
