Vinny created the topic: Juvenile Red tiger oscar

So I decided to start a oscar tank. I bought 2 Oscars a 3 inch albino and 2 inch red tiger. My question is my red tiger has absolutely no red in it. Well none of the fish in that tank had any red. My question is... Is this normal and how long until I see color?? It's a trusted lfs I've dealt with for years so I believe it's what they say it is. It only has black and gray pattern as of now. Tank so has 3 redhooks and a 6 inch featherfin from my previous set up.

hahaha, i just posted my comment in your introduction post...

as i have said in your other post, we need info about the set up.
how long will red becomes red will depend on your tank size, kind of
filtration, and mode of feeding that will affect your water quality.

125 gallon tank running a fluval fx6 and 306.. Thinking of throwing my 305 on the tank as well. I been feeding a mixture of pellets, sticks, frozen blood worms and brine shrimp. On occasion some flakes. I Don't feed all of here at once obviously but usually every feeding is a different food

Tank has been running for a few years but and it's a big but just changed out the gravel for Oscars "previously was a African tank and substrate was with crushed coral to keep pH up" and fx6 is new. 306 is old and 305 is old although the 305 has been off for 3 weeks now. I did transfer old media to the fx6 upon starting it up.

Clown loaches for snail problems? Not good idea because a little hard to care of and grow big although a very long time. Also, they are weak to diseases. Besides, oscars also eat snails.
