What should i put in with my Oscar?

01-04-2008, 12:11 PM
Size of oscar? Size of tank? Filtration? Feeding? Paramounts? Temp.?

Preferably nothing smaller than him or her as it wont be there for long.

Usually 8 or so goldfish will give your tank a very nice color for about... 5 minutes

The length of the tank does not help much, but at only 3' I am guessing nothing. Since they should have 55-75 for just one with a 3' tank you probably won't have room for anything else.

what size tank is it, and how wide is the tank?

The tank is already fully stocked. The plecos and the oscar will get HUGE!

actually, is a 3ft tank a 33g? if so youre way overstocked

That is the problem with listing the length of a tank. A 3' tank can be 30-60 gallons in standard tanks. A 4' tank can be 33-150 gallons.

Please list tanks by volume or at least all three dimensions.

yeah, US gallons or litres would be best. the ft method doesnt work, my 90g and 55g are both 4 feet long

hes about 7cm and is in a tank about 85L

01-05-2008, 01:19 AM
that tanks about a 20g, youre far overstocked. the pleco needs a 600l (150g) tank if its a common pleco, and the oscar needs a 315l (75g)

Sorry but it is 35Gallon and it has 2 bridtlnose pleco which don't get that big.

Bristlenose pleco

okay, good thing theyre small plecos. you still need a larger tank for the oscar though

hows 50 G?

01-05-2008, 01:42 AM
50g is the bare minimum. its not the best but it will do. how wide is the 50g?

01-05-2008, 01:45 AM
50 Gallon tank

I have an Oscar in my 55 and I think its almost to small for him. If you have the option get at least a 65.

Get as big of a tank as you can. Ideally you are looking at a 75 minimum. For now since he is only about three inches you are okay as long as you are keeping the nitrates down to no more than 20ppm. But you need to be upgrading as soon as possible.
