Question Oscars and Gouramis

I just got 2 albino tiger oscars and as they get bigger i plan on moving them to my 55gal tank which now has gouramis, tiger barbs, a cherry barb n a pleco... can these fish occupy the same tank?

You need a 75 gallon at the least and need to get rid of everything besides the oscars.

I had to oscars and they get big fast mine got 10 inches long before I moved them to a 250 gallon tank. And as far as putting them with anything else... Oscars are pigs they will eat anything and everything that fits in their mouths

I had 1 oscar in a 75 for a little over a year it went from 2 inches to almost 10 in that time period. They grow extremely fast given a good diet and good water maintenance.
