Planning to to buy a 2 inch it datnoid to go with my oscar tank. Will it be okay? Or should I relocate my oscar in my 50 gallon tank and put the datnoid with the bichir? Or put the It datnoid in the 50g alone?

My tank is 100 g. home to my oscar 6-7 inches long and an endli bichir 7-8 inches

100 gallons is not enough for a Polypterus endlicheri. It needs a tank around 180 gallons.

2in Dat may be lunch for a 7in Oscar. If Oscar can fit something in its mouth, he will most assuredly give it a shot. Grow the Dat to a safer size before trying it with Oscar

Never had a Dat, so I have no first hand experience with them. As with any fish though, general care will dictate growth rate. Quality diet and clean water will get the most from it. Remember too though, your Oscar is still growing, and still in the range of rapid growth. Your Oscar may be 10ins or better by the time the Dat reaches 4

I read in a magazine that they grow really slow so I will not put my bets on its survival with a fast growing fish like an oscar.

Dats grow at least half as slow as oscars ( 0.5" a month max). You need a dat around close to 5".
