Lovely oscars @Stalker
Just had to
Introducing: Bonny & Clide
Our 2 Oscar babys. About a year old. Maybe someone can tell me if they are male and female or so please. Sorry for the bad picks took them with my BB.
If I may ask. How much do you guys feed your Oscars at one time. I feed ciclid balls. and bloodworms, and occasionally crickets.
It is basically impossible to sex oscars, only sure way is when they are busy breeding.
Here are my 2 babies and one Extremely large adult.Oscars are just great.Got real personality.Like when the see you and start wagging thier tails.Mine jump out the water for thier food.And thiers really no point in setting up thier tank cuas come tomorrow they have moved it all around to suit them
And all the other oscars posted on this thread are lovely guys.
Some nice Oscars, I also like Oscars.
All the Oscars on this Thread looks Beautiful, hjust one stupid question. How long can one keep 2 Oscars in a 4ft tank if you buy them as juveniles?
If you use a standard 4ft tank, you can keep them till adult size. The only thing you must do is more water changes and bigger water changes.
Thanks Stalker, how long does it take for them to get to adult size?
It all depends on how much you feed them. As a young oscar they grow extremely quick till about 14cm. It is important to feed them a variety of food, cooked vegetables, peas(some of their favorite food), ox liver, some protein based foods. Hikari gold ciclid palets(they enjoy these and improve colour), Tetra ciclid sticks.
Protein is important in their diet, but only 3 times a week. Protein helps with their growth especially when their young. Avoid fatty proteins and chicken.
If you feed them twice a day they can reach adult size in 8months to a year.
The more you feed them, the bigger and more water changes you need to do to prevent hole in the head(HITH)
Oscars can start breeding at about 13cm as juveniles. I use to have an oscar female that was 34cm big.
If you feed them more from 3cm size to adult size, they will become bigger adults.
I originally wanted a mbuna tank, ut might in the end get 2 tiger Oscars and I got a big liking into them. Just need to do some more checks before I finally decide
one of my Oscars, I've got two Oscars currently in my tank with 2 pleco's and a 58cm giant gourami.
Very beautiful! Your plants seem to be doing well too. This is in your giant, very deep tank? Are you feeding the plants too? What lighting do you have?
Some plants are plastic. With all the fish in my tank, plants is most of the time eaten up. This is my giant deep tank. I add iron supplement for the plants. With a giant gourami plants is not the best option. I use natural daylight lighting for the plants.
Wow. Beautiful Oscar!
The oscar on the right isn't very happy with an intruder in his home.
This is my home, get your own
