Both the Oscars are a year old. I bought them when they were a little smaller than 2". The Jag I bought when he was about 4" for $40. The Clown Knife I bought big 4-5 months ago at 15" for $55
I bought the big pleco large at 16" for about $10.

Thanks for the kind words. It has taken a lot of work to get this far. Within this year I will invest in a 300g tank. I'm afraid that the Clown Knife will out grow the 150g within the next year or two. Plus I really want a Arowana!

Thanks everyone!

The background I made about 9 months ago. I used cardboard, several pieces of large drawing paper taped together, and oil pastels. It took me about 6 hours, I wanted to take my time with it. I enjoy it being unique and colorful, even though I really like the look of a solid black painted background.
You probally saw it on Monsterfishkeepers.com.
Or Theoscartank.com I am a moderator there helping people with their oscars.

I love this site! Everyone is very friendly here! :D

Beautiful tank, and beautiful fish! You've obviously put a lot of effort into doing it. :D
~I take my hat off to you~ :)
How big is the tank, in length? Thanks. :D :D
Some time in the future, I will buy Oscars. It's a promise. :wink:

Thanks everyone for the compliments!

Cathryn---My tank is 72" long. If/When you decide to get a Oscar just make sure you keep him/her in a 55 gallon tank if it will be by itself. If you want more occupents, I recomend getting as big of a tank as your pockets can handle. Its quite easy to find cheap tanks in your area. I have had excellent luck with craigslist.com
