 Hi  Everyone,
 
 From  the  last  1  year  am  keeping  a  few  oscar  fishes.
 Along  with  them  brought  2  small  wild  fishes  also  from  the  LFS.(  they  said  it  was  albino  kadango)
 Now  that  all  of  them  are  grown  up  -  the  2  wild  fishes  were  always  fighting,  so  returned  one  to  LFS.  But  now  the  other  is  disturbing  the  oscars.
 
 Can  anyone  confirm  the  name  of  the  wild  fish  in  the  pic  below  ?  And  also  whether  they  are  incompatible  with  Oscars  ?
 
 
 Thanks.

 Hi,
 
 Please  remove  the  other  chichild  from  your  tank  ASAP  possible.  They  are  called  malwai  chichilds  and  they  are  aggressive.  I  Did  the  same  mistake  .  I  kept  Oscars  with  them  and  always  they  will  hurt  the  Oscars.
 
 Some  tips  for  keeping  Malwai  chichilds:
   1)Malwai  chichilds  should  be  kept  in  separate  tank  with  lot  of  hiding  places.  
   2)Always  malwai  chichilds  should  be  kept  in  huge  number  .  Keeping  one  or  two  will  be  always  fighting  
   3)Dont  mix  malwai  chichilds  with  american  chichilds  (Oscar  is  an  american  chichild)
 
 Thanks
 Vignesh

 Oscar  can  be  kept  with  fish  which  are  equal  to  or  greater  than  it's  size  if  it's  a  large  tank.  Only  thing  is,  feed  it  well.  Compatible  fish  with  oscar  are  Plecos,  Silver  Dollars,  Green  Terrors  (questionable),  JD  (again,  questionable),  and  other  similar  large  fish.  Each  oscar  is  unique  and  depends  on  how  it  reacts.  If  your  Oscar  is  not  chasing/harming  the  fish  in  your  tank,  no  issues.
 
 And  one  more  thing  from  my  experience  with  them  in  the  past,  when  they  get  spooked,  they  run  into  the  decorations  in  the  tank.  Best  to  remove  them  IMO.  
 Cheers,  
 
 Karthik

 I  Agree  with  vignesh.  
 Malawis  n  Americans  don't  mix  well.
 
 Malawi  in  your  tank  is  a  hybrid  peacock  (auloncara  sp.)  Commonly  known  as  dragon  blood  peacock.
 
 As  for  tank  mate  for  oscar  found  this  very  good  article  on  a  different  forum,  you  can  check  it  out...

 Take  the  african  out  of  the  tank.
 Having  tank  mates  with  Oscar  is  always  like  flipping  a  coin,  it  might  work,  it  might  not  work.
 A  great  deal  depends  upon  the  temperament  of  specific  fish.
 You  an  also  go  through  this
