they are looking fantastic you`re really doing a fab job!
buddy and jambo used to have just the same colouring, buddie was really pale and if jambo went too far back in the tank, couldnt see him at all
aww thanks Shelagh, they are still a bit shy when the light is on (until food arrives lol) but really developing their personalities. Still nameless though Don't think I'll name them until they survive the move into the big tank, but we'll see.
Bo is knocking on about 80yrs old ( not realy) and hes still sacred of the lights- big girl!.
im positive that what ever was in that tank then will have gone by now and theyll love it and be very happy in there.. then you can give them lovely names
my Bo hasnt got much of an anal fin ( due to being kept in a tiny tank and having to keep it raised to swim over other fish- i think) so your boys seem quite different looking to him, i was surprised, only cos im used to it now, to see them with there fins
beautiful healthy looking fish which i don`t see that often these days, even the ones at the garden center are a mess
PS.. love the new sig, its fab!
Thanks shelagh think the sig will remind me in 6 months time of how tiny they were lol.
The big tank should be ok now I just need to get a new drip tray and make a support for the new lights. Then I'm literally going to transfer everything from the 4ft into it - fish, water, decor, substrate and filter media.
These 2 are getting really clever, they have perfected the oscar begging techniques and to keep my lil boy happy the bigger one is a jumper for food.
If you dont mind me asking what happioned to your other O's?
Back in 2006 i kept 2 o's in a 2ft... the one died ( i dont know why/how) and the other suvived.. He never payed any attention or attempted to eat any other fish... We sold him and the tank (sepretely) a couple weeks later ( as i apparnlty loss intrest accoridng to my mom)
Well, I've not updated for a while... Knox my other O's got ill and died within 48hrs after moving into my 6ft, since then it has been stripped and recycled (fishless) ready for these guys.
These guys are now about 4.5" and very uncooperative about having their photo taken.
I've delayed moving them as one of my heaters in the big tank is not working (temp hits 22deg C max )so until payday they can't move. I'm also wanting to add them and the 2 wild ones I'm getting off dave_oddballs at the same time to try and avoid territoy issues. - Think I may need to upgrade the 4ft to a 4x2x2 soon as I know 4 O's will not live happily ever after LOL.
Thanks, they are naughty, they keep atacking Lumpy (my senegal bichir who has a large tumor on its back) and yet they are best buddies with the tyre track eel - who definitely thinks he's an Oscar, he eats from hand with them and even bit me LOL.
