I have been an Oscar caretaker for over 8 years now and I really think that the Oscar fish is the most unintentionally hilarious creature I have ever crossed paths with and I mean that in the best possible way. The mind of an Oscar and its clumsiness at times is just too funny. They are also highly intelligent, and I really think my Oscar cares for me as much as I care for it. Begging for food or not, it always puts on a show and wins the attention in the room.

That's why they are so popular. As soon as you walk into a fish shop they're like little puppies begging you to take them home :-)

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

Well, mine's started a fascination with the heater, which started by staring at it for long periods, and has now progressed to head bumping it. We really need a cover fast.

Also, she has decided she doesn't like the hose that fills her tank anymore, and has taken to attacking it. Which is unintentionally hilarious while annoying, as she can give it a good tug. This is the reason she gets a pellet dropped in before handfeeding, as she gets fed after her daily water change.

Throw yourself in- use the wrong words, try different foods, kiss random fish. It's an adventure!

Thank you for sharing this. Great read! Other than cephalopods, I think cichlids are some of the more interesting creatures in the aqua.
