grow out 70g. Its a 48''x 18''x 18''. he'll be going into a 6'x2'x2' with a 90g sump when he is close to a foot. The pet shop was gonna dump him in a river cause he was the last one there for a week or so.

I know a man who keeps a full grown Oscar in a 70. I'm sure your Ozzy is fine

IMO a 70 is small since I keep monster fish. Usually that 70g is my quarantine.

How big is fully grown to you? Oscars kept in surberb conditions and have a adequate size tank can reach 14-15".
