    WEll I i now hav 6 oscars in my 130 gal tank,
    i could not resist, they are about 6-7 inch each and trapped in a dirty 20 gal at the LPS, someone dropped them off when the got to big for there tank i had to save them, they would have died forsure.
    i think i'll stop now i cant put any more in there, im gonna setup my 75 gal again and keep on saving all large fish one by one.


    RESEARH FISH BEFORE YOU BUY THEM, IM RUNNING OUT OF TANKS!!!

    ummmm, wow...sorry to break the news to you, but your 130 gallon is NOT nearly enough to hold 6 oscars. good-job though on rescuing the oscars from they 20 gallons.

    I agree. I'd put 2 in the 75, leave 4 in the 130, but shop around for more/bigger tanks because you will probably still end up with aggression problems. The ideal bare minimum (as opposed to the just barely squeeze by bare minimum) would be 50 gallons per oscar.

    i know i have runout of room, i got a big chunck of Vacation pay coing in a few weeks so i think im gonna pick up another 130gal.
    2 of the oscars are still only about 5 inch so i'll be same atleast for a month or so.

    anyone else have a problem resuing oscars or any other lage fish doomed in a LFS small tank.
    i cant stand to see them in small tanks.
