I dont know very much about this, but im pretty sure that parrots are cichlids and i know that oscars are. At the pet store that i go to, they have young oscars and parrots together....so i immagine that would be ok. but, it could change as they get older.

I don't own any of them, but I know Parrots can pretty much go with any Cichlid(***provided that you take PH/Temp/etc into consideration***). Oscar is not too aggressive at all, neither is Parrot, as long as they are similar size, and share similar water condition(I don't know if they do), they should not have conflict with each other.

First cichlids need space (at least an inch of fish per 10 gallons.
Parrots and Oscars live well together in a large tank (mine is a 155 gals).
And do I have a surprise as to parrots: one of them mated with a Texas cichlid and they spawn every 26 days. One of the babies survived the crowd and is now 1 1/4 inches long and does fine with his "big" (about 6 inches long and growing) neighbours.
First time I heard of such a hybrid crossing with pure cichlid. And I've been in aquaria for 30 some odd years.
