It's the have and have not attitude. Some people like to have things that others don't. They want to be "trendy".

I agree with Rocksor some people on there have and elitist attitude when it comes to certain fish. Having to have the latest and greatest new fad to come along aint my thing to try to keep up with the jones's. I try to do what just makes me happy and if thats and oscar or any other kind of fish so be it.
I dont understand the oscar hate either but if someone dont like oscars thats there buisness as long as they dont bash on me for likeing oscars.

I guess the thing is that Oscars are a big fish that is easily available & some will think unless your willing to hunt online for a certain fish that nobody else has it's not cool so they are going to hate it.

Hey if I was willing to put the cash into converting by garage into an indoor pond I would have a RTC & maybe I would think differently & be more interested in another fish but I would never hate the Oscar fish.

I love my Oscar & my other fish & I don't care what others think.

So what about them blood parrots? I'm sure as many people look at their blood parrots with love, find their beaky mouths cute, and care for them well for many years.

Or my personal peeve, guppies? Water rats, that overpopulate everything and then some.

I guess it comes down to being a bit more respectful of other people's choices and pets.

Except when they keep guppies. Stupid guppies.

on MFK of what I have noticed they make huge tank and stuff it full of colourful aggressive fish. You just cant do that with oscars so they drop the oscar to have more fish. Thats my thoughts...

I would rather have a nice fish with attitude that chaos of colour and aggression. Get a malawi tank for that.

But each to their own I guess :)

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

My only gripe with oscars is the bio-load they place on and aquarium. I swear oscars take craps the size of a full size german shepards :P :silly: Other than that I love the things. ;)
