I wouldn't call a 4x2x2 a "big tank". Personally, I would fill it up unless you are concerned with possible leaks or flooring support in which case you might have a reason to do it in stages. I would consider a big tank to be 8ft+

I can't seem to lower the ph I put a couple of doses of ph down in last night and it's still sitting at 8.2 this morning. Any hints. I also just tested the tank oscar is in now and it's saying 6.2. But the other readings are 0 so that's good. Do I raise the ph of the tank he is in over 1 day or many?

Stage it accross slowly.

Oscars can handle from ph 6.0 to pH 8.0

But they dont like sudden pH change either up or down.

Take your time.

I would do some partial water changes on the tank the oscar is in now, just so it raises the pH higher.

That way when you move it accross it wont be such a big difference.
