you have plenty of options as far as tank mates. the oscar will work and you could also look into green terrors, jack dempsey, firemouth, severums, chocolates etc...... i would try googling south or central american cichlids and try to find mildly aggressive fish that appeal to your eye.

Fire mouths are a great choice IMO, JD's also are ahold choice but they get pretty big. It boils down to what you like. Google them and see what appeals to you and your tank.

Good luck and let us know what you go with.

Go to tangledupincichlids and go through Jeff's photo albums, tons of pics and species to look at. Some he has some he's had.

Wow that all of what? 15-20 minutes to get the fish and get it in the tank. You work fast! What size tank? Whats your filtration like? How many fish all together, just the two?
