Ok, so IF , IF i did get an oscar, ive heard they dont like bright lights so would a 32 watt flourcent tube light be alright?

that should do. at first mine was skittish, and i couldnt have lights without him freaking out but now he doesnt mind light.

cool thanks.. oh yea the size oscar i plan on (IF*) getting is 1.75" so hes really small.

If you maintain proper water conditions, and feed quality foods, he wont stay that small for long.Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.

my oscars dont mind light at all. and on growing fast????
oscar (my biggest one), ive had him since march this year, he was little when i got him probably just under 2 inches to 6 months later he is just over 8 inches!!!
he eats anything and everything.
ive lost a bristlenose to him and a gold sucking cat.
ive got no idea at the exact number of feeder fish, but at least 2 bags worth!!!
and every other day he gets cichlid pellets.
but he is one of my friendliest fish i have, 2nd is ernie my smaller black tiger oscar and coming 3rd is bert my albino tiger.
