K just did a bit of research, sounds liek your 85 gallon is a 60" L x 18" wide tank.

Putting 2 oscars in that tank could go either way, because when they get older oscars get aggressive with other oscars... I've only seen multiple oscars done successfully in tanks that are 6 feet and longer (125+)... So you'll have to keep an eye on them. I wouldn't recommend it personally though.

Also, channel cats can get to be 4 feet long, not really suitable for an aquarium unless you're TheFishGuy with his 1200 gallon behemoth (14 feet too!)

My thoughts...

1 Oscar
1 JD
1 Salvini
1 Raphael Cat (similar to a channel cat in shape and activity)
8 Giant Danios (who will be eaten eventually, but by the time they're eaten, the fish won't need them as dithers anymore :thumb: )

Anyone else please jump in on this one!
