what is the minimum tank size for a single oscar?
and for 2 oscars?

Adult oscars require rather large aquariums and I would recommend a min of 75 gallon and better 120 or more.

how big is a 75 gallon tank can someone give me the conversions is it like a 3ft or a 4ft or what i have no idea thanks in advance

75 gallon = Almost 300 L. the lenght depends on the width and height of the tank but I would say that 4 or 5 ft is common for this size tank

90G is what I've read is ideal for 2 O's. I get my info from www.oscarfish.com

And a 90 is still only 4" taller than a 75, so there isn't much different. And I wouldn't be too hard core on oscarfish.com, they have come across to me as one of those 'push their way down your throat' type sites that recommends stricter than necessary minimums.
