In all honesty that tank is scarcely big enough for one oscar, with possibly the Pimelodus or plec as company. As for the Pangasius, these are simply not suitable for home aquariums and should not be sold as such at all in my opinion. I suggest you return them before they get any bigger as you'll probably find them very difficult to get rid of later. You should also check what species of Gobioides you have (I assume this is what you mean by dragon goby) as most of them should be kept in brackish conditions.
You really ought to research the fish you buy before you part with any money in the future. There are loads of wonderful species you could keep in a tank of that size. I'm sorry if any of this sounds harsh, but the clue is in the name of the website.
Yeah I'm afraid I agree with Matt on this. This site was created basically because we were a group of friends who had similar attitudes towards fishkeeping, and one of the things we really don't like to see is huge fishes kept in captivity - various Pangasius species being prime examples.
Matt raises a very valid point about selling the Pangas too. Once they get to 6+" they'll be particularly difficult to sell. People tend to buy them from shops, not knowing [or caring] that they'll grow so large. When you try and sell them at 6"+ though, it becomes a bit more obvious that they will get large, and as you're likely to be selling to other aquarists, you might find you can't shift them at all.
Otherwise the tank size should be fine. Are the two oscars M&F? If so, you might have a few issues when they're close to full size and starting to breed... /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
