Oscars are ugly when they're small, but give them time, good food, and proper sized tanks, they get really pretty
once they hit the 5"-7" mark. They're also highly predatory
, and I'm not sure I'd be able to have any Silver Dollars keep up with with their growth rate.
I'd prefer to have the 90g planted, or at least have space for driftwood, and Tiger didn't let me do so! I'd rather have something much tamer, and not another big predator tank, unless it's something really interesting, but I very much doubt I'd be able to find something truly interesting.
Anything I get, has to be fine with the tank sizes, so no Jaguar cichlids or Ornate Bichirs, no matter how much I'd like either, because they get to 2', and I've only got a 55g and a 90g to stock!
