I have a 55 gallon long with a 5" Tiger Oscar, a 5" Jack Dempsey, and a 3" Female Pink Convict. The filter is a 75 gallon one, and the I keep the tank very well maintained. As for decor, I have a few plastic plants, and a plethora of rocks to be used for hiding places. Do you think I can put any more fish in there? If so, which ones do you recommend? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

You are over stocked and most likely under filtered for what you have now.

If it were me I'd lose the Oscar, which needs a bigger tank even without the JD, and add 6 giant danios and a Featherfin squeaker. That should work well.
