I have a 50gal tank and its cycling right now, my question is.
I am going to get 2 tiger oscars, but i wanted to know what other cichlid grows as big as an oscar and will get along with it?
Can i put a frontosa and a green terror with the oscar?

I would be surprised if a 75g was large enough for 2 oscars, TBH. But I wouldn't consider putting one in a tank smaller than a 55g, preferably much larger.

oops didn't realize my tank was that small, i was talking to the guy at my local pet store and he said with the right diet and i quote him "they can be small" ?

but what other fish are there that can grow as big as oscars, as far as cichlid's go?

With a 50 gallon tank I don't think you should be interested in fish that grow as big as oscars. You should be looking at smaller fish.
