Well, I pick up 2 wild oscars on Sunday, be interesting to see how they all get along in the big tank. I am hoping to upgrade either my 5ft or 4ft tanks so I can keep all 4 as they grow. Hopefully I'll have a pair
Lovely O's, it's staggering how fast they grow - were you feeding yours 4 x a day though?
My little baby looks a little like your brighter coloured one, I've only had mine since Sunday and love his little ways already - just as well as he will bankrupt me with his new tank/filter system... And to think I started off with a 60L tank and Gouramis....
Thank you, ah mine is only getting fed once a day at the moment. Maybe I should give him some in the morning as well, but difficult as I don't want all the other fish getting fat He gets hikari gold, tetra doromin, bloodworm and river shrimp at the moment, oh and a nibble of anything else I put in
I need to get my DSLR repaired so I can get some decent pics of him while he's still a baby... He's a lot nicer coloured than in the pic, hard to take a decent photo.
The original 2 I've had since September, they were about 1.5-2" then and are about 5-5.5" now, the wild ones I've no idea, I've had them 3 weeks but I'd guess they are a little older, they are a little bit bigger and bulkier.
They should all hit 7" in a couple of months, they are ALWAYS hungry!
