    Nice looking tank...
    .
    You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

    +1 to the above. Tank is too small for Oscars(although it is awesome looking!!). How often are you doing partials?

    Like Andreah said, it is a 80g and I also mentioned the dimensions in last post of previous page. it is not ideal for 2 oscars.
    About the landscape, I think the major elements which make it look good (if so) are the contrast between the sand and background color, and the vibrant color of those few plants among the black/white surrounding. also, good shaped driftwoods are always attractive.

    Not "too small" IMO, but I agree that something like a 120g would be a lot better.
    I do a +50% water change every other week.

    Not sure what other filtration you have besides the canister but I would get a couple hob's as well. Nice fish, I like the gold one! The tiger was playing his crazy oscar game where they try to fight their reflection. Mine would do that and then scoop up a bunch of gravel and spit it everywhere.

    An 80 g tank is really not sufficient for 1 oscar, let alone 2, but if you're going to keep them in that tank, might I suggest that you speed up your water changes to @ least 75% 1X per week, as this will greatly benefit them? I used to breed them, & the waste load they put out is tremendous.
