I have a 30gallon tank with 3 baby oscars. I was wondering for the future, if it would be necessary for me to get another 15 gal tank for one of the oscars or can I just leave them in the 30 gallon tank when there fully grown too? The oscars love each other and they move with each other.

the three fully grown oscars whould be given a tank with a minimum of 100 gallons. and there will be territory disputes etc, so large decorations to block the line of sight will be pertinent. a full grown oscar in a 15 gallon tank would be like locking an adult in a hallway closet for the rest of its life, its just not natural and can be stressful just being in uch confined quarters.

yeah, brandeeno is right. A 30gal is ok for now. But they will need to be transferred to a much larger tank. They get very big. If you cant afford the setup you can always try to find a good home for them or you can always give them back to your lfs.
