View Full Version : Amazon Biotope/Oscar Tank Idea

06-14-2012, 07:56 PM
So, I had this idea, and I'm wondering if anyone else has ever tried it...

This is it: Option 1 - set up two tanks side by side, and have one overflowing into the other one; Option 2 - set up a large (200g or so) tank, and put a divider in the middle.

One side/tank would hold an oscar or two. The other side/tank would hold an amazon biotope community tank. They share the same water, and show side by side.

I just thought up this idea today, since I've been pondering a biotope tank.

Has anyone else done this? Is it a good idea? A crappy idea?

I see no real benefit to sharing the same water. It might work in favor of the oscars because of the bioload, but be bad for the more sensitive community fish.

I could also see a frustrated oscar, being unable to interact/chase/eat the other fish through the divider.
