I have a common pleco with my 4 oscars, he does fine.

A word about this though, you don't have to have an algae eater.. I don't know of any other fish besides the larger plecos that can safely reside with an oscar.

Plecos would be the only one I can think of. If an Oscar can fit a fish in its mouth or think it can....Lunch time!

Raphael catfish are good with oscars too. Not an algae eater, but if the oscar gets the catfish in its mouth it probabbly wont do it again, and they have really tough skin.
