Its a 29 gallon aquarium
right now:
-2 oscars 2 jack dempseys
1 pleco

I plan on either giving them away or planning on a larger tank.

Brian,

If you can't give them away, see if your local fish store will take them in trade....

I got the fish from petsmart and I was told that they might not take them back.

I know that Petco will take fish, but don't know if they will give credit or not....

right now I'm planning on investing on a larger tank, what size should be good for three oscars ,two jack dempseys,and a common pleco? ???

Going just on size alone, 39"+16"+18", you are looking at 73 gallons at least.. maybe a 90g tank would be the size you'd want to look for, unless you can find a tank closer to 73g.

I'd agree with FLBC, go large! You've already got the fish, and once they grow to maturity you'll have a spectacular feature!

I was thinking about getting a 75 gallon I am a little limited on space, I was thinking og getting one that is tall as oppossed to being long.

I'd stay away from tall tanks as they're a bit of a waste of volume for the fish. Most fish get exercise with horizontal movement. I know I regretted my 10G vertical hex.

I'll second that comment. The tall tanks like the hex don't give the fish any real chance to stretch and swim. I have a tall, but it's incorporated with my 4' so they get the best of both worlds, and have plenty of room to move, but ordinarily, IMO they are a waste of time certainly for larger or more active fish. (Incidentally, the combined volume of the tanks is 62 gallons, not far off the size you are thinking of!)

sounds like you have great fish, how would you incorporate a tall tank with a normal tank?????

This is the story of how he did it: and it's well worth the read... We all pay homage to timg's creativness, willingness to experiment and never give up attitude! 8)
