View Full Version : Jag, Oscar, Texas & Pleco together at Last

Well I decided that I needed to give this a go. Everyone at my LFS has said sure I can put these fish together. I just got given the Texas on Friday and he is stunning. So I put him and Aggro (my jag) in the Oscar's tank. Aggro & Mr O had a few mouth locks - no real damage done as I was watching like a hawk and now after 2 days they've all settled in quite well. I've made extra caves for the jag and texas as the texas is a bit smaller than the others - I've loaded pics2559

2560, I shall keep an eye on them and see if they stay happy but so far so good!

Thanks he's much happier, bigger & more brightly coloured now I feed him Hikari Bio Gold. The tank is 4 foot x18x15inches. No doubt it will have to be upgraded in the next year or so.

Yes I had some smaller pellets there and tried him on that, but he totally ignored them, I'm going to get some larger one's and give them ago with him - he's so fussy. My texas loves the NLS. Although my jag is very finicky with pellets as well!
