Hi everyone I have a few questions about my 110gallon fresh water setup. I was told and know I am overstocked and hopefully within 6 months will have a 240gallon tank when I move.
I Have 2) albino tiger oscars,2) black/red oscars,2)Black convicts,1)Neon Jewel cichlid, 1)Striped raphael catfish, and made a super rookie mistake and got a couple pleco's (Please don't hate on me for that mistake too badly). The tank is lightly planted with some structure (@ this time all fish have co-exsisted for 6months)
Now for filtration I may have gone overkill but i turn the water in the tank over between 10&11 times an/hr using 3 HOB filters & 3 Canisters. I'm a fan of both HOB & Canisters and this way I can make cleaning filters easier by staggering cleaning them.
Water conitions are very good. I use a Api master freshwater testkit and nitrites, ammonia, ph, & nitrates are all good and water is good and clear.
Anyone with experience with oscars have you noticed what temps within their range they like best?
Will a 240 gallon be big enough for my fish?
All 4 of the oscars school together and sometimes the convicts do too. is this normal behavior for these fish?
With perfect water conditions how long can I Safely keep this community in a 110 gallon tank? ( all the fish seem to like each other and started off in a 55gallon together)
Thx in advance for any and all advice and comments
