Hello Everyone,

My name is Jeff I live in South Florida and have been keeping tropical fish for over 30 years. Oscars are a true favorite of mine and I keep 3 Red Tigers. They are currently only around 3 inches but growing fast. I have kept them in the past but only recently got back into raising them. No fish has the personality of an Oscar. I look forward to getting to know you.

I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Hi there Jeff, welcome to our little community. I would imagine that you can probably catch Oscars in some of the waterways in Florida. I've seen photos of people who have caught red Oscars in some of the rivers and waterways. I wonder how big they get?

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

OFL,

Yes, here in Florida some irresponsible fish owners over the years have released Oscars into the waterways and retention areas. My guess is they saw one in the pet shop and thought they were cute as babies, not realizing what they were getting themselves into. I am an avid fisher and have caught my share of Oscars. People actually eat them if caught they call it white, flaky meat with good flavor. I always release them back when I catch one. My largest catch was 2.1 pounds around 14 inches. They grow really big in natural waters.

How would I get immediate notifications via email when posts are made to threads I subscribe to? I checked the box to receive notifications when I first posted but never got one. I had to manually visit my thread to see these comments. Do I need to check a certain box in my settings.

Thank You
