Hey I am setting up a 10’x6’5 pool pond, do you think I could put a 1 tiger shovel nosed red tail hybrid, 1 arowana, 1 peacock bass, 1 jag cichlid, and 2 oscars? I want to care for the fish and make them live a happy life. I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t over stocking!!

I‘m not experienced with monster fish but from what I can imagine I would say that it definitely wouldn’t be crazy overstocked like most of the monster fish aquariums/ponds on YouTube etc. I would maybe leave the Oscar or the Jaguar Cichlid if I were you. But there will answer an experienced monster fish keeper pretty soon I guess. But especially the Oscars would be very happy with that much space. From what I see on YouTube. There are lots of oscars who are kept in aquariums way smaller, so I think in comparison your pool pond would be pretty big for the Oscars. But as i said, I can’t give you an professional opinion like others here.
