Thread: What fish is this? Barracuda?

You make a good point with the oscar in regards to a 4ft 75g tank being the usual minimum tank recommended, and I agree bigger is better. Your opinion of a 5ft tank for a 1ft oscar is the same as I described in that it would be 5x's the oscars length in swimming length. I think another factor that should be considered is the activity level of the fish. A fish that might be a barracuda can be assumed to be an active fish, and would appreciate more length so again, a longer tank would be recommended. I also agree width of the tank must also be considered.When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

^ I meant Dovii, not Jag. If a mod wants to change where I put Jag for Dovii, that would be great. Sometimes I get cichlids mixed up....
