Ok Guys, It's me again..you know, the one that has 2 Oscars in the 2.5 Gallon tank. We'll I got my hands on some money and am trying to find a deal on a tank and I know this is a tank question and should be in the tank area but since my last post was in here and this is an update I figured to stay in this area.

So I'm able to get a pretty good deal on a very nice 75 gallon tank for my two oscars. Is that too small? The tank comes with everything including a red belly pacu and a bottom feeder and of course I have the 2 oscars. I have no idea about this stuff and figured you guys would offer some great advice.

Whereas 75 gallons isn't really big enough for two Oscars, it's certainly a lot better than 2 1/2 gallons. I think with regular tank maintenance and good filtration, you might just cope but that doesn't mean I am recommending 75 gallons for two Oscars. As for the other fish, don't even think about keeping them. Pacu can reach 3 feet, these are really only suitable for people who have suitable tanks. As for the bottom feeder, depends what sort it is. However, I would just keep the two Oscars if you do yet the 75 gallon.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

thanks for the advice. i figured 75 gallons was ok for just one oscar but i was really iffy on having two and this seller has other fish too. i'm actually on the search for a 125 gallon but this 75 one happened to be a really nice tank for a great price. i don't want to spend the money on a nice tank that i will have to end up getting another one. i'd rather spend the extra money and get a suitable tank for them.
