New Oscar Tank
Long time no see guys! missed the AC.
I recently set up a new 80g tank for old buddies. They are over 3 years old. The tiger one is the offspring of my old pair ( female in my avatar died last year and the male I don't have him anymore ) and the Lutino one that I kind of rescued from a fish store 3 years ago.
Here is some photos.
By now the Os have eaten half of that giant crypt! and there is some serious algae problem in the tank. I will set up a good canister as soon as I finish the work on my thesis in the coming days. Some work should be done on the stand to fit the canister inside.
Feels good to be back on AC.80g Oscar Tank

Beautiful fish. They are huge. They really make their presence known.Lots of tanks. Some tanks are planted. Fish include community and bettas.
2 Dachshunds. Angel (Red) and Cookie (Chocolate Dapple).
Shiny Things and Beauty the rabbits.
RIP Princess and Max the Dachshunds, Tiger and Ping Pong the rabbits, and all the fishes from when I was a newbie.
It is Ldoerr NOT Idoerr.

I would not add anything else to the tank. They have lovely coloring but the gold one looks a bit skinny to me. That sunken belly doesn't look quite right to me but I've never had these fish. Great coloring and nice looking fins so maybe it's just the way the picture looks.
Like the branchy wood, too.

I must agree with Hobbs on the fish being a bit on the thin side. I am also concerned about the size of the tank for 2 Os. The fish do have nice color and the tank is beautifully scaped.150G SA Cichlids|100G Planted Community|50G Reef|20G Tanganyikan|10G Divided Bettas|10G Nano Fish

Both fish look extremely healthy. Beautiful.
The only concern i have is the tank does not look wide enough for them, what width is it?Lots of tanks

Thanks everyone for the comments.
Alasse, the tank is 16*24*56" (40*60*140 cm). the footprint is not as big as what I was planning for, but since it came with a very good price I took it. the whole tank and stand for $120.
Lady Hobbs and Jenn, the albino one already was in bad shape and had some belly problems when it was 2 and half inch long and I picked it up from the LFS. it got better but still a bit of belly deformation may be noticed.80g Oscar Tank
