    No, I believe the minimum for one oscar is 55g. They are heavy waste producers and grow extremely fast.

    The care sheet says you can keep one in a 30 gallon. If you go to fishlore.com, there is a list of all the fish on the right side. Those are care sheets, and list what size tank is minimally recommended. :)

    Pirhana are schooling fish, a large school needs 100+ gallons.
    IMO, Oscars need a minimum of 75 gal. for ONE.
    You could keep a pair of Cons in a 30, or a pair of Jewels

    I agree that you need alot bigger than 30g for pirahnas as they schooling fish.

    I agree, I own Piranhas and Oscars (seperate tanks!) but Piranhas need to be in groups of 5 or more. Your gonna need 100+ and prefferably a longer tank.
