Also the more water the easier to maintain water quality with a messy fish such as a Oscar.
At the moment, my oscar is in my 54 gallon tank, witch is 3' long, 19 deep, 18 wide. I think that this is better because he has more space to swim up and down and turn. The most important for an oscar is not the vertical space, but both vertical, height and the wideness of the tank.

I meant depth, as in front to back... Not how tall the tank is.

I did a lot of research, red oscars can go at most 14'', only tigers and ect can got a bit more. But only in optimal conditions.
But if you look, a 75 is 48" x 18" x 21" and 90 is 48" x 18" x 24"
There is petsmart in Canada just to let you know but I have no idea about oscars
