This is gonna sound crazy....

But I've got a 125 gallon tank thats stocked with alot of neon tetra, black skirt tetra, angelfish, Bala shark and clown loaches. I'm considering moving my JD to that tank, along with my oscar. Am I just asking for trouble? This is the craziest Oscar and JD I have ever seen. The literally just lay on top of eachother most of the day and arent aggressive at all to the few danios I have in their tank.

What size tank are the jd and oscar currently in? How big are they?

At a glance, I would say yes that is asking for trouble. Just my opinion though.

Currently, they are in a 55 and only about 3 inches long. I know it sounds crazy, but they really are sort of peaceful. It's weird. So peaceful that for a while I thought they were dying!

Water parameters in check? Not usual behavior from these species of fish.

At three inches it is impossible to tell agression. as this peaks around 18 months with oscars. I am not positive on the number of months on the Jd but...

Water parameters are in check. Checked earlier. I thought the same thing.

I agree. They are still just babies, so I would recommend waiting for awhile to see how they will behave as adults before even considering putting them into a community with edible tankmates and angels. Its really cool that they are so chill, but don't bet money just yet that it will stay that way IMO.

The oscar and JD will eat every last one of those black skirts and neons, guaranteed. It's really not a good idea.

I would have to agree with jeta. I had an Albino Tiger Oscar and a JD in 55g together and that turned into a disaster! They couldn't stand each other in the end.

Edit: granted that wasn't smart to begin with!! Haha

+1 to Jeta. 3" are still babies, the Oscar is going to kill the other tankmates.

Why does every one think this with oscars? it depends HUGELY on the fishs personality.
