The 55 isnt even going to be big enough for the gar.

If you do go with oscars it could only be one Oscar. That's pushing it too because a lot of people only recommend a 75 as a minimum for an Oscar.

Definitely not the gar, that needs to be rehomed immediately because it can grow to over a foot and a 4 foot (55g) tank is not big enough for it.

Oscars grow to over 8 inches, and depending on who you ask will say what the minimum tank size is. Some people so a 55 others a 75.

However the 55 is not big enough for both, yet alone the gar by itself.
