theres nothing big or clever about that video, its disgusting behaviour keeping an such a beautiful fish in a TINY tank like that....... totally unreal.

I certainly agree with you about keeping an oscar in such a small tank, and I can understand your disbelief at the size of the tank. It seems to me that I goofed and I apologize.

I wasn't having a go at you, I was just disgusted by the video.... I guess at first look it is quite amusing that the fish attacks the cat, but upon deeper analysis its probably attacking the cat due to stress, being cornered in such a tight space with a huge predator looking on from above with no protection.

I have been seeing a lot of awful videos of late of Oscars being kept in tanks too small for them. check out a recent post of mine regarding this matter

again a disgusting example of ignorance. such a shame, Oscars are one of my favourite fish, although I cannot keep them as I do not have the space...
