An oscar should be kept in at least a 55 gallon tank. I think a 75 would be better.

How big is he? Is he the only fish in the 33 gal?

Just don't put him in a 10 gal tank LOL

Agreed. He does not belong in anything less than a 55 gal tank. 75 is even better but I'd go even larger if possible. Even if he is the only fish, the tank is not large enough for him.
