75gallon

Postby Cwag » Fri Jan 22, 2021 3:31 am

I currently have a 75 gallon tank with, a Oscar, jack Dempsey, pleco and a jewel all currently smaller then 5”. I’m wondering if there is anything else I can add to the tank?

You're already over stocked once everyone is full grown. The jack would be fine, but the oscar will need a bigger tank.

As per James above.. the 75 gallon is barely enough to house an adult Oscar on it's own. I might suggest adding more filtration, if that's the tank you are going to stick with, and it shouldn't have more fish.
