Hello all OFLs,

Let me introduce myself,

I am sonu from India having 20 years of experience in tropical freshwater fish keeping B)
now I am in love with Oscars too :laugh:
all that started 5 months ago with a visit at local pet store. I was buying some fish food & suddenly I noticed a so little (almost 1-1.5 inch) white fish alone in a pot looking sick :(
I thought its an "O" but still I asked the sales person & he told me that I am right. It was an albino tiger oscar. at that very moment I decided that only I can rescue him. (I always hate those shopkeepers because they never care what fish needs)
so I bought him for less then half us dollar. after adding him into one of my aquariums, I started searching about Oscars & found very useful info on this site.
That little fellow grown very fast like no other fish & he/she is now 7 inches long in just 5 months :woohoo:
(you can see him in my profile picture)
Now I have 3 Os
1: Albino tiger oscar
2: Albino veiltail tiger oscar
3: Regular tiger oscar

I would like to see some response from other members so I can go further & post some useful n interesting info, as well as I would like to share my tips n tricks which may help you guys...

welcome to the community...

first reaction is... how big is your tank for the 3 oscar?
3 oscar would need a big tank with good filtration... but
having 3 is not good combo... most of the time, two of them
will gang-up the weaker one or outcast...

in oscar... the more fish you have, the lesser the aggression...
however.. you will be needing a big tank in doing that..

Thanks Draco,

my all 3 Os are happy in 3 tanks, the details are as follows -

7 inch albino :-- 200L tank
4 inch tiger :-- 100L tank
3 inch veiltail albino :-- 100L tank

All 3 Os are kept alone & I am using power filters of 600L / hour capacity plus 80% water change every third day because they eat so much.
daily diet contains -
6 pool barbs(2 inches long),
dried shrimps(they just love this crunchy snack)
some crickets...

sometimes they gets some treat like Earthworms, cockroaches, frogs, lizards, sweet corn & peas...

please tell me if I need to feed them something else...
