Oscar and Peacock Bass

I have a 135 gallon aquarium that I am revamping. Previously had peacock cichlids...... I am an experienced fish keeper and have had oscars before but only in a 75 gallon aquarium. I understand parameters and wide open swimming spaces but need some advice on how many oscars can go in a 135 gallon (full grown). Also, I would like to add a peacock bass but donít know if one by itself is appropriate? I would also like a catfish of some type - no pleco though and Iíd prefer no other fish species. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Peacock bass can reach 20 lbs, not an aquarium fish.

Peacock bass is a South American fish from Amazon rivers dude, definitely not a aquarium fish, can reach 30Lb not only 20 as said on previously advice. Its the largest cichlid species but it can be compared with Africans, which are pretty big as well.
