    May come down to him having that aquarium all to himself. Others here more familiar with Oscars will jump in and tell you their thoughts. I've never had one.

    I hope you plan to keep that blind closed since I see your tank is infront of a window?

    I haven't seen you post in the introduction thread so will welcome you here. Welcome to AC Community forum. Great place to hang.

    Welcome to AC. Very nice oscar too, that 48 gallon can only hold your oscar. You should not put anything else is there.

    Hobbs said to keep the blinds down to prevent to much temperature change and also to slow algae growth. BTW welcome to AC.

    For starters I would buy proper lighting. Eventually the oscar may jump and hit that light knocking it in the tank. And then TSSSST! no more oscar!

    Welcome to AC...beautiful oscar you have there! Don't worry too much about decor for oscars unless you plan on it being a plaything. As soon as hubby gets done cleaning the tank and righting stuff they go around knocking things over! If they can't knock over the airstone decoration they will swim behind the airline until they can pull it enough to do it for them. If you wish to have anything stick with stuff too big for them to move around.
