Looking for a stocking suggestion
 
I'm going to the LFS today and am thinking about picking up another fish. I want something that will grow fast and get pretty big....anybody got any ideas?

With your oscar? Give the large species of rainbowfish a try.:) Most grow up to 5 inches. If not, get some fancy plecs.:checkedout: Throw the name of the common plec down the chute. It's not in your league.:wink2: :bluelaugh:

Big and grows fast? Clown Knife or Royal clown knife if ya can get ahold of one the royals are hard to find. I had one with my two oscars got her at about 6inches she grew fast last measured her at 12inch had her less than a year sadly I lost her. :( but they are beautiful, graceful fish and great to watch stalking their food.

Well I didn't so much get something that grows fast, but I saw a fish and fell in love with it. It's a parrot cichlid (not the red kind..?)

I'll try to get pics, it's a small booger, but isn't shy at all in the new tank. :D

Ohhhhhhh :lol:


I have no ethical dilemma with the hybrid, to be honest. It's a spunky little booger, fits in greatly! :D

It's surprisingly outgoing, everything I've read about them is how long it takes for them to get comfortable in their surroundings. Given, she's just hiding and swimming out every now and again to check things out, but she's already eating and swimming around on occasion.
