I looked at firemouths and dont like them, to me i think they just look blan, and same goes with silvers, just to plain
wouldnt a bristle make a lot of waste too?
Im just wanting one other type of tank mate to go with him, just so its not just 1 fish ya know?
i just figured i'd be doing alot of water changes lol

Id guess any semi-aggressive cichlid that grows to at least 4-5 inches would be a fine tank mate, once again it comes down to the individual fish. One you might wanna try is Blue Acara. I'm planning on one in with my sev and to my understanding the different species traded uner that name tend to be more peaceful.
And while i said many people advise against convicts there are those who say they work fine, like i said depends on the fish.
Also as i said earlier, my understanding of oscars is only from limited experience when i was young and reading up on them.

Hmm maybe i'll see what my LFS has for firemouths
How long would it take for Oscars to pair off? being young ones?
Cause i would consider doing that, as i love how each one looks different
But i wouldnt have to worry about them actually having and raising babies would i?
If so, would there be some other fish that could go in that would eat the eggs? (they are egg layers right? lol)

Ah lol okay
Yeah oscars are a little over $10 each here, and im lucky my LFS likes me and i buy from there all the time, so i got him for a bit cheaper
But to buy or so more at $10 each, then to have to find homes for the remainding 4 would be kinda difficult, i would love to have 2 of those gaints though they are something else
He was pretty goofy this morning, darting around at the other fish
colors were much bolder this morning, hopefully with me not being home till sunday night, he'll lighten up and will be more at home so i can actually watch him instead of waiting for him to come out of hiding
