    I personally think an oscar is to big for a 30 gallon, so don't go that route.

    I "THINK" the bichr and the cichlid would probably be ok, it really all depends on how pugnacious the cichlid is.

    If you want an easy to navigate site that will give you a good round number on what size tank is appropriate for a fish, go to www.liveaquaria.com it is a web merchant, but they do have nice little data sheets on each fish. unfortunately, their predator selection is limited.

    If you want cool interesting fish that are vicious, you can't go wrong with african cichlids. but PLEASE do your research before you buy. don't expect this forum to shovel feed you the info, you need to read for yourself too.

    Hey, how about a tank full of fancy guppies?! Lotsa color and non-challenging propogation. Then you won't need a second tank just for feeders.

    and you could feed them to your plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I have no idea about cuban cichlids, never tried keeping them.

    Glider14, just because your school did it for 6 years doesn't mean it was healthy. The final full grown size of an oscar is simply to large. if the school kept them in that tank for that long and they were not to big, then I would suspect a nutritional issue, or internal deformities from a small environment.

    30 gallons are barely buckets of water.

    if you are going to keep saltwater, I wouldn't start with less than a 40 (nanos are cool but they take a lot more effort, not suitable for a beginner) and in fresh water, anything smaller than a 40 is suitable for community tanks and not much else.. predators need space, if for no other reason than to dilute their copius wastes.
