In too small of a tank the fish will become stunted and they will have problems with their internal organs and its lifespan will be shortened. Zombie is correct in that water quality will be affected in such a small tank and this will also affect the fish's health. Oscars are very messy fish and need larger volumes of water and lots of filtration.
