My 60 gallon tank.

I am getting ready to get a 60 gallon tank. I was thinking about getting an oscar cichlid, a firemouth cichlid, a few Angelfish, and a Pleco (for clean up). Do you guys think there would be enough room for them?

well, oscars do grow quite big and i'd advise you to get at least 2 firemouths. The firemouths do grow relatively big too. I like the sound of angelfish though I love angelfish!

oscars grow to roughly 28cm
angelfish to about 12.5cm
firemouths to about 15cm
pleco to about 60cm

can you tell me how long,wide and tall your tank is?

The tank is 48" (121.92 cm) long, 13" (33.02 cm) wide, and 24" (60.96 cm) tall. Technically when you calculate the volume it is 65 gallons, but they call it a 60 tall.

I would drop the oscar. They need 75 min to be really comfortable. I would do 3 or 4 angels, the firemouths and a smaller variety pleco.

Isn't true that the fish will only grow to be as big as their environment will allow?

No they will still grow internally causing them to be weak, prone to disease and shortlived.
