You sure can keep it with your Oscar. The exo will eat anything you throw in the tank.

My exos refuse to eat much other than flake food and bugs that I find around the house and throw in the tank. Everything else they pretty much ignore.

He should be ok with your Oscar. I think the odds of the exo ripping at your Oscar are pretty slim, but you should keep an eye out for missing scales anyway.

i once had an exo that was half the size of my p's. and he would chase them around and nip their scales off all the time. i was contemplating taking it out and the next day when i got home from school the exo was gone. . .

Like said it is a exo :nod: They can be kept with other (larger) fish. BEcause of their swimmingspeed they are a very hardy prey to catch. But they do feel a lot better in a little shoal

look @ this little tidbit of information:

"Due to a misinterpreted photograph in a published fishkeeping article, some people falsely believe that this species can be kept as tankmates for Piranhas. However, young Piranhas are likely to be attacked or devoured by Exodon paradoxus and any Bucktooth tetras that are placed with adult Piranhas will quickly become a food source."

I doubt the Oscar is going to be able to catch the exo. I wouldn't worry too much about it
