Separate them right away---either by moving them to different tanks or using a divider.
What all tanks do you have, and what fish do you have in them?

They definiately will. I had a 7" with about a 3" one time and they got along for about a week or so - then I can home one day to find the 3" oscar had most obviously been in the others oscars mouth starting from the tail up. I would DEFINITELY move him as quick as possible. Take him back to your LFS if nothing else.

You're welcome.
One other thing...it's really going to make it a lot easier for us to give you advice on a better long-term solution if you list your tank sizes and their current stocking.

you will need more rrom for 2 oscars. 110 at least when they are bigger. any if your 6 inch oscar thinks that the 2 inch will fit in his mouth he will try and eat it.

hey BV :D
