I have a 5ft 450 litre tank filtered by a fluval fx6
Currently have a 2.5 inch tiger oscar in it. I did have a Green terror and Blood Parrot but they are now re homed.
Should i get a tank mate for my oscar or should i just leave him/her in there?

If you wanted you could add some dithers like SDs in there, but you could also leave your oscar in there alone and he'd be perfectly happy (and spoiled to boot). If your little O is quite shy some dithers would help, but if he's happily swimming around I'd personally be inclined just to leave him in there on his own.

He seems happy enough in there on his own, always comes to the front of the glass when somebody enters the room.
I know they don't get lonely it just seems the tank is a bit bare. Guess i just need to be patient and wait on him growing.

I 2nd the idea of leaving him alone. Just a wee fella, and tank may look a little empty, but next year this time he may be a foot long, and will do very well on his own. Good looking tank btw... bowfront?


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