Hi mate,

Before you worry about spending money on a heater or this tank you may want to consider that an oscar will grow as big or bigger than the tank you have it in, the best thing to do is go out and get yourself a large tank and start from scratch and keep it in something more comfortable a 4ft minimum.

in north queensland wouldnt you probaqbly need a chiller instead of a heater :)

Good to hear he has a decent tank waiting for him.

best of luck, wishing you many years of happy oscar ownership
