Welcome to OFL Annabelle. You are indeed in the right place to learn about Oscars and their required care. For starters you may want to browse our many categories. Plenty good info right there. Anything else crosses your mind, just ask.

Thank you for the warm welcome. I have a 75 gallon tank and wondering if this is ideal considering that they will grow pretty long. What is the ideal tank set up for two? Also still learning about tank conditions and hope that this will be a great place to learn.

Couple of potential problems Annabelle. 75 is good for only 1 Oscar. We recommend a minimum 6ft tank of 125 or more gallons for 2. I am concerned at the moment if your tank is cycled. Can you explain exactly how long this tank has been running and what size and brand of filter(s)? are on it. Have you done any water change since setup? Something you will need to purchase is a water testing kit. The API freshwater kit is most used and most trusted. It may run you as much as 40-50 bucks, but is a very valuable accessory
