Hi I have had an oscar for a while now and i have had him in a 29 gallon tank. He is about 10 inches, but i recently got a 55 gallon tank. So will he grow more and how much more? :unsure:

Welcome to our community. How old is the Oscar? Good on you for upgrading to a larger tank, 29 gallons of far too small. It really depends on how old the Oscar is now. Also, a lot depends on the sort of water conditions that the Oscar has been housed in. If you tell us how old the Oscar is, we can give you an idea of whether it will grow much more

Hello and welcome to OFL. Getting an Oscar to 10ins in a 29 is no small feat. I assume he has had decent care, minus the needed room. Would like to see some pics, or better still a short video of your guy. If a 55 is the best you can do, it would actually be best if he is done growing. He is only 2ins less the width of the tank, and in fact thats still too small, but obviously way better than a 29.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Fishes have indeterminate growth given there is food and space, but after sexual maturity very slow. Exact numbers are hard to determine.
