Hey guys, im from korea. And i raised almost kind of fishes. But oscar is the best fish for me,

Cuz this creature can accept all kinds of food and very strong(endure all types of water)

Anyways, i have a quick question. The question is, how big tank can make a one huge oscar fish like

Over 16 inch(40cm). I think "3feet x 2 feet x 2 feet" or "4 feet x 2 feet x 2 feet" what do you think?

I already read the article in this site, but i just wanna make one big oscar.

I know it depends on diet and gene, but basically i have to know the tank size.

"Thanks for your time guys"

The bigger the better when it comes to tank size, but honestly I dont think you can " make " him bigger. Its a mix of his genetics , the room he has and how well he is taken care of in my eyes. We all want them to grow up big and healthy , but there is only so much you can control.

I honestly dont think there is a whole lot of answers of what size tank to use to MAKE an Oscar over 16 inches. We generally recommend at least 75G to allow them to grow to their full potential with a good diet. Those are things you already know. What is this need to have one over 16 inches ?

I honestly dont know if the meaasurements of the tank will determine the size as much as water volume and care will. Of course for the fish to be able to turn around comfortably you would probably want something more then 12 inches in width. Perhaps 18 ? And for him to be able to really stretch out a little maybe a 6 ft long tank ? I dont know that this would guarantee an Oscar over 16 inches long. Maybe some of the other memebers will come across this and have a little more information. You will just have to be a little patient and wait for them to come along and read this.

Welcome aboard!

Yes an Oscar could achieve 16" in a 4x2x2 tank. Like Firestorm said though genetics are often prohibitive to getting an Oscar to 16"

I'm gonna move this thread to the Inroduction section of the forum

4f x 2f x 2f tank is 110gallon... Its over 75 gallon.

But you dont know exactly about one oscar can reach over 16inches in that tank.

Ok, neyways thanks for your comments

I thought oscar fish lover memebers knows about this question. Little bit disappointed

I know exactly nobody cant tell they can reach that size in that tank.

But ppl can guess or percentages
