View Full Version : Oscar color?

Ok at my LFS they have an albino oscar with hardly no pink lines on it and a tiger that has yellow and red lines. Is this just from cross breeding or what? Pretty cool, I am debating on getting one of not.

There is a lot of variation among oscars, which is one of the nice things about them.

They are both real active and neat but I think I like the tiger better. Now I need to debate on getting it or not, 11$ for a 3" oscar is a lot.

well i like oscars!
IMO if you don't have any oscar now and have suitable tank for it, certainly go for them.
i like tigers more than other ones. yeah 11$ is too high for 3" O but if its so pretty and worth the price i would take it.

You dont have the room for an oscar in your 55 do you? I thought it was fairly crowded as it is. I say no, unless you got another tank for just 1 fish. Frankly, having 2 55 gallons set up and one only being for 1 oscar is sort of a waste of electricity. Id think of a different option. Actually, i wouldnt add anymore fish.

Lol, have your forgot about the big tank I have on lay-a-way, opps!! Thats a surprise. :hmm3grin2orange:

Cmon Kuli! How big are we talking?!

It's a surprise but don't worry, it will be a LONG time before I get it.

haha, but we have to be the first to know when you get it!

No problem but it will be a while so don't be expecting it to soon.

yep, thers alot of variations of oscars, i like all of them, but i find the long finned oscars a bit awkward. i love my oscar though, black with a few red patches

Kuli probably has like a 1,000 gallon tank on layaway. He'll be getting it in about 2010. :hmm3grin2orange:

Seriously though, just joking with you, Kuli. I wouldn't advise you getting an oscar until you have the space.

I don't have him, I won't get him until this tank is closer to being off lay-a-way which is gonna be forever.
