The Original Mouse Video p's had an oscar in with them for 2 years. I think it might work for a time. I would go ahead and try it but rearrange the tank and make sure they are well fed! Good luck!

They must be well fed!

Be carefull, Oscars are not sissy, they are territorial and can harm a P if they want!

Plenty of room needed!

i agree the odds look pretty bad and the oscar will get its tail nipped constantly ,it may also lose parts of its lip trying to defend its territory trying to lock mouths with the reds

It might work, but as said oscars are aggressive fish, you might be better with a gentle giant - what I'm not quite sure, but an oscar would have a chance

let us know what happends with the oscar. I have seen it done many times.
My pacus is living with my reds no problem. But you do have too keep them very well fed.

Based on the other threads on here today about this topic, the Oscar will not live very long.
