Lol. I Talked to an actual owner of a pet store today that has several african cichlids, two oscars, and a pleco in a fifty five gallon tank. Sounds like a concentration camp. (Not to make light of the past). I can not see how the fish survive like that. I hooked up the Twist 3X and after several leaks and 40 minutes of tube changes and trouble shooting I now am proud to say that it works. Hopefully it will be a benefit to the tank. Fish friend should be here in about an hour. Will be posting pics of the tank and my daughters turtle set up later as well.

Alright. Good news and bad news. Dear friends fail at times in following direction. She listened to the store clerk and not me. I now have Two small Oscars, A small Bala shark an Angel fish and a very very small (although cute) Pleco. The current plan is to keep said fish in my current set up until The new year at which time I will make a road trip for a larger tank. Size really is not an issue as I have more than enough room in the house. If the Oscars appear to "attach" themselves to each other I may just seperate them from the others when the larger tank is obtained. I have a friend in MD that has a 6 foot aquarium once used for Pacu. Not sure of the actual gallon size but it is conciderably bigger than the current set up I have. Again, thank you so much for the advice and help!!!!

Sounds like a plan. Hopefully you can get everything going smoothly and get that tank some occupants. There is nothing more exciting than stting up a brand new fish tank.

I love my fish tanks. In my last house I had a 30 a 90 and a 55. They were a lot of work but so fun at the same time. I have had some great fish, I miss my giant Gourami and my old Oscars the most. I used to have a green terror that had no eyes. (when she was small she was attacked and they just healed over.) She was from a pet store. Had to keep her fed with lots of feeders. She was a doll though.
