    Thanks @JaLu and @SterlingAce. Yeah i do have some tank busters, i like me some big fish haha. Im getting a bigger tank in the next month or so then they can at least have much more room to swim around. My 2 Pangasius Sharks are very active and like swimming in the bubbles so a bigger tank will do them good.

    Nice clear water, no just to get a background to hide those ugly but necessary wire.

    @Saturn Not really going to spend money on this tank to get a background as like i said earlier, im getting a bigger tank soon and going to sell this one. So its not worth it.

    @WadeSmith... 250l is barely enough for 2 Oscars....

    Those Pangasius get big!!! And so does Bala shark....

    Just for interest sake what size would be adequite for these types? I've seen some massive Pongacios a while back. A few braai pie sized monsters.

    Add a zero to the end of that size, and you'll be close to the size you need for those fish.

    For two oscars for life you would need about a 5" 500l tank, you would be able to add a few other fish to this, for pangasius if you want them for life, a 5 to 6mx2mx2m 15 000 to 20 000 liter tank or tropical pond, you'll be able to add a couple more monsters to that tank.

    Sorry.. My advice was a little bit of a thumb suck. @Jwh will have the facts. We don't mean to offend, just give an idea of the rate of growth to expect and to give a heads up where the road is headed for you. Without this advice, you may end up with a trail of inadequate tanks behind you, and/or a loss of interest in a hobby that could given you so much more, had you started with a different selection of fish.

    @WadeSmith, as @Broder says… no offence was meant.. Just advice..
    And.. Just another thumbs up, again just as a matter ofinterest..
    I have now rescued 5 Oscars out of tanks with BIG Pangasius thatwere literraly mau;ed by the pangasius, I watched this happen where the 4 pangassiuscornered the Oscar and attacked him.. I went crazy
    My blacky has a missing eye, I can post pictures
    My red albino had all his fins mauled and to this day theyare deformed
    Another 2 I healed and then found good homes for
    I don’t know if this is because they get aggressive oncethey big, I just know what I have experienced…

    I don't want to sound negative.
    But 250L for Pangs, Balas and multiple Oscars isn't nearly big enough
    Double that wouldn't be big enough!

    Those fish get huge and need plenty of space. An indoor pond would be ideal :blink:

    Yeah cool i get that you guys are just giving advice but i have done a lot of research about all the fish i have(which i always do before buying any type of fish). I plan on keeping them until they get too big and then hand them over to someone who will want them. The reason for this thread was for people to see pics of the fish i have(because many of you like pics) and not a thread to ask for advice. Incase bullying occurs i do have a backup tank to separate the fish, so i am well organized.
