Hi everyone
 
   i read on another site that you should keep an oscar (juvenile) byitself or with a group of 4+.                   is it really necessary to keep them in a group of four? i have two oscar juveniles(2in) rite now.   ???????????

The idea behind this is that in a group, any aggression will be spread out.  With two, you may have a bully that constantly picks on the other fish. 

At that size you may be okay, but when they begin to reach sexual maturity and become territorial you may have problems.

How big is the tank?
