I believe there was some oscar/Astronotus crassipinnis crosses before people realized they were a seperate species. But as TFG said, they are a realitively primative group ... I believe the closest they would have a chance with would be Cichla, and peacock bass are hard to breed to begin with.

Aside from A. crassipinnis (or another Astronotus species) I can't see them hybridizing with anything but a Chaetobranchopsis or Chaetobranchus species.
