    What size tank? What size are the fish?
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Right now the Oscar is in a 55 planted tank (hopefully he doesn't decide to rearange) and only about 3 inches. I was considering getting a JD

    A 55g is not big enough for the adult Oscar, Much less any company.

    You will need a 6ft tank minimum to house both an Oscar and a JD. You would be better off sticking with a smaller companion fish with the Oscar, Salvini and Convicts make much better tankmates. You could also get away with a 75-100G tank with them.

    'Probably' is not a plan... Just saying, Is this a 6' tank or a 4'tank?

    You will need to do something though as the Oscar will be 8" or so by then and have nearly outgrown the tank.

    Not sure what you mean by 'double filtration' as this is the minimum amount of filtration you should have. More is required when you have large deep bodied fish.

    IE: I have an Oscar in a 100G tank and it has an EHEIM 2217 & 2026 as well as an AC110 and I am not overfiltered.

    Ok well I guess ill wait to get a JD when I have a more suitable tank for it. On my 55 gallon I have a hob filter rated for 70 gallons so what type of filtration system should I add for my Oscar. I have noticed he poops a lot and gets food everywhere when he eats

    You should have atleast another large HOB, or preferably a canister like a Fluval 405/406 or a Rena XP3.
