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.

big fish

I would suggest the bowfin. Other names grinnel, grennel, ling, dog fish, mudfish etc. family name amia calva. very rare and interesting fish (prehistoric origins) air breather, last of its family, but can be caught all along the southern states as far west as texas. fun to catch by the way lol
