I just purchased a Tiger Oscar today. I know I have a smaller aquarium, but the people at the pet store said he's be fine. I have two goldfish in the aquarium with him right now, but my other tank needs to warm up before I move them out. I'm very excited and I love his color. He is almost all black with grey stripes only on top of him. He also has a very thin orange/red tip on his upper fin with an even thinner blue one under that. I was told they grow to the size of your tank, but hopefully I'm getting a bigger tank soon. I want him large and eating smaller fish. He loves the structure I put in. He always swims through it. I was told to feed him around eight pellets once a day. He is not very large. I've owned Dalmation Mollies and bred them before but I've never had a Cichild. Any tips are welcome! Thank you!
P.S. You can contact me at KillerCichild@yahoo.com
It's easier for me to respond that way but I will check here, too. :D
