HI ... I also am new here ..!!! Nice to meet ppl who have the same hobby ..!!! NEED SOME KNOWLEDGE. So I got a 36g bow front tank ... I went to this place called pacific mall in Toronto . It came with a filter called trio2000 that I did research on and it was discontinued.. Lol... So I fill it up with water .. Threw in 30 ml of conditioner and 25ml of cycle and let the tank run for 2 days .. (Don't hate ) couldn't wait any longer and got 2 white albino oscars bout 2.5 inch .. Put them in and they seem happy .. Fed them bloodworms and pellets ... The next day I added 2 more the algae eating suckers ... Everything Went good ... Feeding and looking at my beauty tank ..!!! then the next day after work . I saw them lying on the bottom of the tank and they seem titled and fins cramped (non responsive).... Tripping me out ... I added 75 ml of cycle .. The next day everthing seems normal . They eatting again ..!!! So right now I'm sitting in my tow truck writing this situation I'm in ...

It might be a wild oscar. The ones I have seen have less red than the tiger oscars sold in stores, and any red pigmentation doesn't show up usually until close to 6-7". As wild oscars mature, they tend to be way more aggressive than the store bought counterparts, so keep an eye out.

That photo is of my young tiger oscar - the pic in Rocksors post is what i believe to be the wild oscar.

Still waiting on confirmation from importer. He said he has imported oscars around the time in question but before confirming all info would also check which catch site it was from and provide me with that info. Looks like a legit Wild.

Just need to see who pairs off now! It was the Lutino and the Tiger but the Wild seems to have pushed the Lutino out. Or the Tiger just wants a threesome.

Nice oscars. That one could certainly be a wild caught. There are quite a few around from time to time. I bought a wild caught and didn't know what type or region he belonged to until he was around a year old, then was able to determine him to be Bahia red tailed. Here's a couple pics of him when he was all black with just the red eye spot ring on the tail. He was this colour until 9-10 months old,

And how he looks now at a year and a half old,

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.
