My oscar's new tank
I finally got my oscar a larger tank. I raised hir from an inch long baby to hir her present 1 year 10 month 12" glory in my old 55 until yesterday when we purchased a 75 wide from our LFS; an independent establishment just recently moved to a bigger nicer place so I wanted to continue my patronage and support their success
I already had adequate filtration, even for the greater amount of water, so I switched all my old filters to the new tank as quickly as possible to reduce O2 starvation to the aerobic bacteria. Looks like everything's OK as this morning my tank's clear as crystal. I continue to run a bare bottom but my 55's was painted and now my oscar keeps trying to swim down through the bottom glass to check out the filters or whatever s/he thinks s/he's trying to do so I may have to cover the bottom somehow.
