To the king of diy that is nothing compared to the hybrid jag I'm getting number 1 my fish will be extremely extremely extremely extremely extremely violently overly aggressive and territorial and predatory 2 when it comes to size he will get to a large 40 inches. No 0scar,red devil,Midas,jack dempsey, or most vieja cichlids can mess with it 😆😆😆😆 HAAA

My very first fish was a tiger Oscar, I still have him even though pretty much every other fish I've had has come and gone. He's 14 inches long and in a 6 x 2 x 2 aquarium on his own (he's beat up every tank mate I've tried except for a Green Terror that beat him up). He takes pride of place in my living room, when he was in the fish room he was always the fish that got the most attention from visitors particularly children.

We would need to know more information, what size tank? what other fish were in there, how long have you had it, what's your water parameters/ppm.?how long has the tank be setup up? Oscars are pretty hardy fish. and can survive a lot of conditions even with poor acclimation. They arent too disease prone, especially compared to other fish.

I saved one of my Oscar's from petco, he was abused by the other fish (I'm guessing), he had one eye missing and Petco didnt even try to help him, I think. I got him and his buddy that was right by side, so got them and healed him. I now had them for over a year. I love my Oscar's.

I was considering one to cull my betta. My betta are very expensive and cannot risk giving away or selling cheaper because it undermines the work put into these rare breeds. Is there a good fish for being the Cullinator, if not these? I really like these fish though. What size tank is good for rearing fry? Can male and female be kept together and rear fry? I think not but curious how that works.

@Kiran Kicks yes you do, at least a filter. Air pump you can get away with by letting your filter run high enough over the water where it breaks the surface of the water making it oxygenated..(temporary solution if no air pump) While they’re small that’ll be ok but when they start growing which they will and quick you will need a air pump.

New oscars tend to sulk, they're just playing dead and scared of you. Leave it alone give them a week or so and they'll be fine. If you have lights turn them off at night and I cannot stress this enough leave them alone if they're sulking they will be fine.

I found that Oscars like most animals are more docile after they've been fed,and some will grab the tip of your finger and it doesn't really hurt....depending on the size of the Oscar though. And some will also come and lay in the palm of your hand...depending on what mood they are in I've never known a fish to do that! Which is another reason I love them they can be aggressive yes,but they also had their softer side to And the babies were always so cute! But grew fast!

Gorgeous Mr. Hook and great down-to-earth info, Joey! You're gonna make me come back into the hobby and build 1 or more tanks, if only for your enthusiasm en clear presentation. Still have to plan these things out well, since I'm living in an apartment and though there are some options for placing tanks, I'm going back and forth between building in place myself, or let a professional do it for me. Ah, making plans about beautiful fish.... Anyway, keep it up, always thoroughly enjoying your vids. Shout out from The Netherlands!

I just got a tinnnny red Oscar on Monday! I didn't know that they change colors and are moody; I've always only heard that they're like dogs and such lol my fish will throw a fit when I offer something it doesn't want. Mostly, it wants bloodworms. Today I tried frozen brine shrimp and it actually went pale then started almost swimming on its side in protest for a few seconds before turning right side up and going back to normal colors. It *is* so much fun watching them! Can't wait for this fish to be bigger and watch it throw more fits 🤣🤣🤣
Natasha B
Natasha B 10 ամիս առաջ
Update: my tinnnnny little Oscar is no longer tiny lol it's about 5 inches big now (I do frequent water changes because it's in with a pleco which. Is not little now either) and learning what it will and will not eat was a journey. Lestat no longer wants bloodworms. Loves raw shrimp and peas! Refuses pellets, but loooooves algae wafers. I started feeding Omega One frozen cichlid food and fishie went NNNUTS! I have to start making my own food though because as Lestat gets bigger, fishie wants to "attack" the food and Lestat can pretty much swallow the cubes whole now. Still a drama queen; hates certain colors and protests during water changes. (Currently in a 65 for about. One more month) If you're wondering if you should get a cichlid, as long as you are prepared and have the knowledge GET ONE. You will not regret it. Yes, they are work but it's worth the extra effort! Nothing beats fishie tail wags and your fishie coming up to you!

That's why I like them because they are predator fish.

Is a 6.2 pH good for Oscars because my tap water won't go any higher

Try a small amount of baking soda. That works well for me.

She's currently in only ~ 70 gal. of water. But the 'tank' is far-more functional. She has 1000 sq. in. of open surface space. Oscar's are not helicopters.

My firemouth cichlids do a color change every time I have to do a cleaning in tank ... They are not my biggest fans today 😂

My oscar, named FATTY would only eat from my hand and had a big black circle near his back fin almost like a eye. He didn't like his pleco either. Would only eat the heads of feeders and never got along with any fish I housed with him
