Been awhile since I've been on here. Last time I had just brought home my first Oscar. He's grown a lot. Recently I rescued a Jack Dempsey from a tank way too small. My tank's only 110 gallon, so I'm either going to upgrade or find the Jack a suitable home.

Thanks. I'm looking for 180 gallon tank, but they're expensive new and hard to find used.

Good rescue, I'm a big JD fan. He looks in pretty decent shape. You may want to consider a 6ft 125g. That would hold both fish alright, providing they get along. Also about half the price of a 180.


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

So far they get along. Nudged each other at first. Hopefully they keep getting along.

Soooo....It didn't work out with the Oscar (Ares) and the jack dempsey. It was fine for a few days, then Ares relentlessly chased the jack dempsey. Would pick at the jack dempsey every time the jack would leave a corner. Found the jack a good home in a huge tank.
