Petco $1 Per Gallon Sale At My Store!

And I'm finally getting a proper tank for my Oscar! Which right now lives in a 29 gallon and he's got to be 9" long.

I'm thinking about getting a 55 gallon, but should I go bigger?

From what I've heard 70 gallons is the min. recommended size. However I've never owned an oscar. Either way it's a nice upgrade =)

It is great to see that you are willing to get a 55 gallon or bigger! I would honestly get the biggest tank (within reason) that you could afford/store. At my Petco, it says the minimum number of gallons that you need for that species. But, you can never trust the pet stores, so whatever it says they need, I would go bigger.
