The main reason i never kept an Oscar was fear of hole in the head. I got into keeping Jack Dempseys instead. Still a pretty fish doesnt grow quite as big though. Maybe even a texas or pearl cichlid would be nice.

It's really not bad. Just don't over feed. Once a day tops and not fistfuls when you do. They are good fish and interesting to watch.

There are fish out there like a green terror, red devil. Red terror. All good looking fish. Mean but neat. Get about 10" ish. Flower horn if you want a central American cichlid or frontrosia? If you want African. 7 lines frontrosia's look better than 6 lines. In my opinion.

I want to say yes but really I'm not sure. Hopefully someone with more knowledge can chime in.

What about tank mates for a Jack Dempsey? Instead of the flowerhorn

You cant really do tank mates with a Jack because they can get vicious. Since you have a 110 you might be able to do something if enough cover is provided.
