    You would think that but 9-10" oscar can easily hunt a school of full grown giants danios at night when the lights are turned off.

    Hmm... Maybe not, then. How about syodontis (can't spell it) catfish? They're fatter and they're active. Or some sort of giant cory. There are cories that get like 5" long, I think...
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.

    Have you considered some silver dollars or maybe some other schooling fish to keep him company? He needs something to chase imo,
    Yeah, it made sense when somebody or other said he would be better off by himself being a dominant territorial temperament, but that's just sad..... attacking himself in the mirror all day. I agree with getting him somebody to chase if you can find a fish that won't be emotionally distraught by it. Another oscar would be cool. Just because they fight doesn't mean it isn't better to have two. Or a pack of small fast schooling fish like fishguy said.

    Why are there people posting in this thread who know nothing about keeping oscars? You are not helping the OP if you are just guessing at solutions.

    Everybody just likes to be a part of the discussion and express ideas and thoughts. At the same time I do agree with you I also believe that you can tell when someone is professing knowledge and expertise or just throwing their two cents and thoughts in. I will attempt to keep my personal opinions at a minimum.

    Before I go I will say I don't home any Oscars and never have, but fish have feelings too and even if they don't we must treat them as though they do because anything else would be inhumane and we are of a higher intellect than that.
