they told me 4 to 5 inches, more like 6.5 to 7, big enough to look as big as my 3month old sons head when I let them look at each other LOL and I haven't made up my mind yet...I have a 45 tall that would work for awhile or a 90 thats not setup yet (needs a stand)..kinda leaning towards the 45 and moving my fish/plants over to the 90.

I would go for the 90. An oscar grows very fast and needs at least bare minimum 55g. 75g is way better. I would not put him in the 45 truthfully. I have an oscar who is only 3-4" who has a 75g to him self. That's my buddy. He uses the entire tank. Also look at getting a filtration turnover rate of around 20x and you will need to do weekly 50% wc to keep up with the amount of waste these guys produce

Nice adoption. I as well would put him in the 90. 45 is too small even at that size. They say 55 minimum but I believe 75 minimum for an oscar by him self. I keep mine in a 125 with some silver dollars. He owns the entire tank and the extra gallons allows for the dollar tankmates.
