Does anyone have and Tiger Oscars that can give me some advice?

I've had my Oscar for about a month and I know they are very aggressive fish and all but I'm wondering if putting a Pleco or some other kind of algae eater fish that lust hugs the glass if my Oscar would try to eat it. He's about 6" now so he could do some damage to a small Pleco and I don't want to spend money on a fish just to have it be killed.

Depends on what temperament your oscar has. My buddy has one that's 14inches, and she doesn't bother the 3 inch convict, gourami, pleco, CAE, or pictus cat that's in with her.

What do you feed it? What size tank?

I agree with the previous... it all depends on your oscars temperament. I had one years ago that we kept with a common pleco and a few other fish, but the oscar was the last fish to go into the tank.
