Tankmates

I have a 120 gallon tank with 2 oscars, 2 blood parrots and 3 good size plecos. Still plenty of room? I would like to either get more parrots or perhaps you have a suggestion...? What else should i put in?

What kind of plecos and exactly how big? I wouldn't suggest adding anything else since the fish you have are all very messy ones, but that's just my opinion from research, I've font have any first hand experience with oscars

You sound pretty well stocked. It's a 5' tank, and 3 common plecos with 2 O's alone stock the tank.

2.5"? You said in the first post that they were "good size". I was thinking like 5 or 6". Are you aware of how big they get? What kind of plecos are they? Common plecos get pretty big, so like others have said.....you shouldn't add anything else. If you are planning on adding another tank at some point, then you can probably get away with adding something else now while the plecos are growing out. I wouldn't really recommend that unless you are diligent with tank maintenance.

Yup! haha....maybe he just doesn't know how big they get? And we still don't know what type of plecos. How big are the other fish?

Are those Pleco's seriously only 2.5"? Not the impression their picture gives.

Either way you're already overstocked and shouldn't even consider getting anything else other than a bigger tank.

That pleco does look bigger than 2.5". May it's 5.2"? As stated, that tank is stocked. How big are the oscars? Do you have pics of those guys?
