Beautiful oscar! And the silver dollars look great!

I have no other fish in the 55g because I haven't bought the 55g yet.

Could I put a chinese algae eater in with them? Or a Cory cat?

Cory cats would be absolutely fine. CAEs are probably too aggressive (when mature) for the SDs. SDs are easily spooked and a CAE will try to suck on them at some point. People say Siamese Algae Eaters are better, but I have never kept SAE so can't confirm that myself.

I kept SAEs for awhile. They are docile. I would think they would be just fine with SDs.

I've read that as long as they are a fast moving fish the CAEs won't be able to suck 'em. But I see your point. My CAEs will attack the platys sometimes but the platys are small and fast. And platys are not flat bodied fish.
