    Oh she's sooo pretty!

    I want an Oscar too, but I just haven't quite wrapped my mind around such a large aquarium for a single fish. I'm not implying that they should be in smaller tanks, but that I can't imagine myself wanting a single fish more than a large community.

    Thanks!

    These A.orbicularis are extremely deep bodied fish, I would never suggest one in less than a 90-100G tank. If the tank were at least 5ft some tank-mates would be possible so you wouldnt have just a single fish. Typical A.ocellatus dont reach the mass these do so you can get away with a 75G tank. But with any tank with an O....all other fish are just filler, they are worth the investment and tank size

    interesting, I didn't realize this is a separate species than your standard oscar. What do you keep her with? I read a few people saying A.orbicularis to be super aggressive.

    She is gorgeous!
    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.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    The health and beauty of your fish really reflects on your dedication to them
