    When do you know you've got aggressive fish and it is breeding season? When you are doing a water change and 4 oscars think they can bite you. The only one that didn't bite me is the GG

    His name is Breakfast. There is another post called Breakfast all about him.

    The reason why I call him Breakfast is because when I got him, he was only 2cm big and Gekkie would've eat him with no hassle.

    This morning when I had a look at them, I noticed that Breakfast was swimming side by side with Gekkie. Gekkie is a strange GG as she always protects the small fish.

    This oscar, Breakfast is really getting protected by Gekkie. Gekkie is so big, she would be able to swallow Breakfast one shot without any hassle.

    I've been trying to take a photo with all of them together, but there is to much aggression between the oscars.

    That is a pleco(P.gibbiceps) and it is every eavening out at the top eating palets and all other food that I feed the fish. That pleco is becoming really fat from all the fish food. It is always funny to see that pleco chewing pallets at the water level

    @guillaume some more photos of the pleco's and other

    My other part of my fish tank family, the plecos. I think about selling the leopard pleco as it is always sucking on Gekkie.
