Hi
I have a Cherax quad who is about 5" long at the moment. She is in a tank on her own (30x18x18") and mostly hides away.
Would it be ok to add a couple of oscars to the tank? The man in the shop said that the oscars may nibble her antennae but apart from that they will be ok together.
I really need to add something of interest to the tank as it just looks empty 99% of the time.
Any imput would be greatly appreciated.
Nik

Unfortunately your tank is too small even for a single oscar. They grow to be a foot long

an 18" Oscar? :rolleyes:
Yes, without doubt.. for one ocellatus examples have been reported to grow to about 45 cm (18 in) in length and 1.6 kilograms (3.5 lb) in weight...wiki link
and a fully mature specimen can and will vary to a %.
roll your eyes all you want... then prove it wrong!! or better yet I can get the pictures. It lives at my LFS
