I have a Oscar and I just added a Jack D. And they are about the same size and and they are fighting each other. Should I just let them for night or do something ?

Is the tank 6 feet? Could try a partition for awhile. Let them get used to the sight of each other, then let them out together. Sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn't, but worth a try since the tank is big enough for the 2.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

What size is the Oscar? If he's a big fish (+/- 12"), & has had this to himself for a while, chances are this is now his tank. The divider might work, but it all depends on the temperament of the fish in question.

It is not a six feet one. He was with a JD before. I had something filter issue when I went on vacation and my old Jack didn't make it. So I put one back in and HE the Jack seem to be trying to bully my Oscar. However I moved some things around and it seems like he has claimed down.
