My guess would be no. In my experience, green terrors are very aggressive although their adult size is less than an oscar's. Oscars (again in my experience) tend to become aggressive generally when breeding or if the other fish are small enough to be considered food.

since they get 1'-1.5' imo a 59 isn't large enough for one... just saying at least a 75

to AA!

I don't think 59 gallons is suitable for even one oscar. Even though you can keep one in a 55 gallon successfully with very pristine water with a good water change schedule, you need more than that. A 55~59 does not provide a big enough width for an oscar to feel comfortable turning around. I still stand by the 75 gallon minimum for ONE oscar. For two oscars, a green terror, and a proper bala shark school you're looking at a 180+ gallon tank.

Ok just remember that they will grow fast. You will need a bigger tank within 6 months.
