Am I feeding him enough :hmm3grin2orange:
I do 5 bucket water changes, 12l/bucket. 200l tank.
lol your right, works out at 25% twice a week.
Teehe, I work in buckets.
About 3 months ago I noticed a small appature forming in the skin between my oscars eye and mouth, then another. They grew to be about 1/16" across.
Alarm bells rang.
Diet was frozen bloodworm...
I use Yamistsu Algae Master 11watt on both of my main tanks. Retail therapy gone mad.
I used to have problems with algae but dont now.
I used to have water quality problems but dont now.
It seems that most of you guys seeing this are in america, I am sooooo glad we dont get this in the UK..
I mean, fish die but it sounds like wholesale slaughter, dont you have animal rights...
Looking good. thumbs2:
Peas, peas, peas.
My oscar loves em and its good for their tummies.
Manually help him get unconstipated, sounds worrying. Just Peas will sort him out.
contiboard, its like chipboard with a veneer finish, not MDF but similar.
I will need a bigger one eventually, a couple of years time maybe? see how it goes.
And your right, never enough, I...

I do live in the uk and I agree with unleashed, Nice reply btw,
I recon the queen has quite a lot of power but generally dosnt throw her weight around, she seems to act like a figurehead and...
Thanks guys, you confirmed my suspicions and stopped me doing something silly.
Its a long story but at the end of the day I have ended up having 4 juvinile oscars in my loach tank, it was going...
just got a message from Emma Turner, I think she has sufficient credentials to give the most accurate and definitive answer. Here it is
There are so many factors that affect the...
Good question and one I am desparate to find the answer for, looking at my stock lists you can see why.
I bought 14 about a year ago, they were all the same size and about 1 1/4" long and are now...
Children love to feed fish, they just cant help themselves. Fish love to eat food, generally eating all that is placed before them.
excess feeding causes Ammonia spikes which can kill your stock...
Totally agree, But beware, algie loves high light levels.
I have never mastered the art of keeping plants alive except the low level lighting ones ie java and anubias.
Pardon?? I think you have miss understood.
Dave66 had the beasts. lol not me, I would just like to see some photos of Dave66's fish.
I find it staggering that DAVE66 managed to get some clowns to...
So, I have a 55 gal tank with one 6month old tiger oscar in, fully cycled and doing very nicely.
What will happen if I throw a 2" juvinile red oscer in his tank?

Sounds like you have overfed them on flake. Barbs fed on flake, which is prodominantly on the surface, take in air as well. this air gets trapped inside the fish and it is constantly trying to swim...
come on Dave lets see photo's of these beuties, where are they now?
its 60"x24"x30" high 180USgal or 800 liters, in a few years I am proposing to get a 84"x36"x36" but I think the clowns are ok for a good while yet.
This photo was taken maybe 4 months ago but the layout is fundimently the same just more plants now and no other fish other than the loaches...
Hmmm, clown loach grow fairly slowly, I have found them to grow at maybe 1/2" or 1" per year when there young so I would sincerly chill out about their living space. If they survive then your gonna...

Just thought I would pop in and say hi.
I have been working hard recently making new homes for my little fishies, I thought I would share my work with you.
Here is a general photo...
Looking awsome, brilliant and inspiring.
A word of advice, I arranged some stones simmilar to your arrangement and found that my zebra loach liked to get in the gaps and managed to get into the...
