entertaining an oscar
 
1 Attachment(s)
Pictured is my oscar's tank, the center suction cupped faux plant being the subject. Originally it was attached to a Water Wonders faux log base but the oscar kept attacking the decoration and tearing it up. Come to find out it was this specific plant rendition the oscar either hates or likes way too much. I placed it alone on the suction cup and the oscar continues to attack it, occassionally dislodging it from the suction cup, no small task.

Gives hir a hobby.

My nephews friend had a Red Devil who would drag the plastic plants all around the tank. LOL

Have you ever tried floating a ping pong ball for your Oscar to play with?

I've tried in the past but my oscar acted like it was going to kill him.

A plastic ball too large for the oscar to swallow floating in the tank is great for an oscar to bat around for hours.
