I have a big 11 inch Oscar that was in a 75 gallon tank but due to my mom being ignorant she got rid of it and now he is in a 29 gallon tank I want to keep since I’ve had him for two years but I want what’s best for him

I would try to find a nice home for him. 29 gallons is way too small for a large oscar.

I would rehome him. Call a LFS and see if they'll take him off your hands for store credit.

I'd definitely rehome. With a fish that big, being in a 29 gallon it wouldn't surprise me if he jumped out or something crazy. Very little room to swim.

He would be the dominant fish in there

Give them a call and ask. Don’t make any assumptions.

This is a hard choice giving my favorite fish away

The owner would love to take him in but I’ll give away a fish I’ve had for a while hard choice

I've heard stories where an Oscar can literally destroy a small tank. Like shatter the glass, tear equipment off the walls, and other fun stuff.

It’s your choice. No one can make you do anything—except maybe your mom.

If you want what's best for him, then I'd rehome him. It's completely up to you, but I couldn't keep a pet knowing I'm not giving it the quality of life it deserves
