Welcome to Fishforum.com.:wave:
What size is your tank? That is an oscar growing to 12 inches or more. One oscar alone needs a 55 gallons minimum with powerful filtration. Also a piscivore (fish eater).
Yep that is a little dyed oscar. Id say 75gal min.
looks like a "Albino", "Albino" Astronotus ocellatus AKA Oscar, Velvet Cichlid, Marbled Cichlid
and they say a 55G is the minimum for 1 oscar, and most sites that say that also say "55U.K gallons" whitch is just under 66US gallons
a 75US G's would give the fish some more room, as a 55g is the minimum but there would not be mutch room for a 12 - 14inch fish to move around
There is one way to settle this. Spedy, do you have close-up pics?:)
In my opinion the fish is moving fast and the stripes are all screwed up. It looks like an albino tiger oscar. and julie here is a pic of one for you.
Picture is now showing up. Nothing wrong with image link but could be just occasional glitch.:?
Here's the picture in case it disappears again.
albino tiger oscar? saw some at an lfs there pretty cool looking and they guy said its not dyed.
