    ...getting an Oscar was my 'Plan B'...however I'm not able...with our set-up...to provide 2 WCs a week...esp. on the 120g I was planning on getting for 1 Oscar and a small school of Silver Dollars...

    ...I have a good idea of the mess an Oscar can make from visiting tanks and I fully agree that you need to have the largest tank you can get...ultimately it will make your life easier...

    ...with your Oscar in a 55g...and with overfiltration...you'll still need to be prepared to do 2 or more WCs a week...

    ...and once that novelty of that wears off (and it will...quickly) then what? Find another home for the Oscar? Too much of that going on already. Buy a bigger tank? Cheaper and easier to that right from the start...

    I am now on 'Plan C'...since I really REALLY don't want a tank bigger than 75 g...for practical maintenance purposes...

    Weekly water changes should be sufficient, although if the bioload is really high you may need them to be big, and many would rather do two smaller changes than one large one (even though they are not equivalent).
