I would drop the Oscar. Needs different water than the jd and gt and could max put a 125 on it’s own.
You could get a convict (and maybe another small cichlid depending on what others say) with the two and some dithers.

Which Cichlid do you want to keep the most? All the fish listed are from different locations with different requirements central america, south america, and africa.

Actually both Oscar and gt are South America. Oscars are from Amazon (soft and acidic). Gts are from west of the Andes (hard and alkaline). Jds are from Mexico (hard and alkaline).

Have you considered a bichir tank? You could keep a single medium sized cichlid as a mid water swimmer.A guy I know keeps a green terror in 120 that''s overloaded with bichirs lol , pretty sure he does 2 50% Wcs a week though.
