Yup oscars r kind of water dog u can say. Very interactive with their owner. Wen u get close to the tank they wil also come near u. Sometimes they even beg for food and take it from ur hand. That's the coolest thing. I love my buddies.

How about wolf cichlids? I think they're awesome but will never have room for a tank big enough.

Or you could get a bull head catfish

Or an Amazon biotope

So many possibilities... I'm jealous

I actually have a jack Dempsey just like that! It's pretty big about 7 inches so far, he always begs for food and jumps a few inches out of the water to grab food out of my fingers!

Forget the tank Congratulations on the birth of your son. The tank (and us) can wait

From the pics, it looks like you're thinking schools of smaller fish or else the bigger fish are going to destroy those plants. If you get swimmers, it will help keep the baby occupied with their movement. That's my 2 cents

Congrats on the baby! I suggest a nice piece of DW in the center. Then do the schools of small fish.. Then get some Koi Angels. I saw some really nice ones today at the LFS. They'd set that tank off and you can get quite a few without breaking the bank for about 9 bucks a pop.

Congrats!

With all that real-estate I'd recommend a real big school of corries, lot's of activity and fun antics to boot. Those with some nice angels and maybe Congo tetras would look really nice IMO.

Looking good! Did you boil the DW first? It may leach some tannins in the water and you'll get that tea color. One more suggestion.. perhaps get some Java Fern and attach them to the DW, once they set and start growing, the end result is pretty nice.

Something like the Java Fern on this DW example (never mind the grass in the background)...
