I absolutley love this. Great progression shots! I wish I would have done this with my Oscar. But when I got her I didn't have a camera at all.

Very Nice! :)

Thanks!

I'm starting plans for a 260gal for him and other possible tankmates. What tankmates do you guys suggest?

The lutino out grew the tiger probably because he's more aggressive during feeding time and had to move the tiger to a grow-out tank so he can catch up. Unfortunately there was a powerhead accident on the grow-out tank and the tiger got sucked and stuck. :(

I also tried to introduce a Red Oscar 3/4 of his size. That oscar was so timid and wouldn't defend himself or at least get out of his way. I've tried moving/removing decors and sand so that both oscars would start off on a newly "reset" tank. After I've placed them back in the tank they seem not to mind each other so I went out. When I came back home I found the Red Oscar dead.

The lutino was staring at me like a seasoned Mafia hitman. He was like saying, "Introducing a new fish huh? I don't think so."

Hence the name "The Boss".

that's interesting because in my experience the lutinos /albinos/ ruby reds are usually the least aggressive, and usually grow the slowest and even bullied. .... i look forward to seeing that big boy in action... maybe even a vid. :whistle:
