An Oscar is bad idea in a 29. They need a 55-75 minimum. They can grow an inch a month and reach a foot in length.

Two gf alone is full stocked in a 29. First gf needs 20g and each after that needs 10g. I have 3 in a 40g and I can't add any more fish.

to AA!

+1 with Konvict.

+2 with Mumma about goldfish. Even with proper filtraton I would still only do one goldfish in a 29 gallon, as it's a lot more manageable and easier for yourself.
