yea my shoal is 5 currently and I'm looking to add another 2-3 for genetic diversity. Good luck and let me know if you do decide to go that route.

Sounds like its not adjusted yet. I'd keep the light on for a few hours at night it'll get used to it, maybe even turn the room lights on let it adjust then hit the tank lights. Hiding places would def help make it feel more secure I think. You could probably also add some dithers like danios or SD's to help it feel comfortable till it gets bigger. I'd def bump that temp up to atleast 77-78deg F.

He is just being a green terror.
Green terrors are not oscars they are not very friendly, they need much much more time to trust you and they do hide, someone correct me if I am wrong they hide not because they are scared but to ambush passing fish and to stay away from the sight of predators in nature, that's their normal way of living

tehmole.. Beware with that GT in with your O. I had an Oscar almost killed a couple weeks ago and I'm pretty sure my Terror was in on the beating. Your O's size advantage wont hold up forever. Love my GT though, not shy, very active and great colors. Around 4ins and around 14 weeks old.


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

When i feed my Oscars,they come to the top and start eating even before i'm done putting and closing the Lid.However GT who has actually spent more time than my oscars, hides in the corner when i'm putting the food,waits for me to go.Then comes out and eats when no one's around.

Just give him time,he might change but nothing is guaranteed, however he will never have an oscar personality

every fish have their own personality ... but eventually your GT will come out of his shell .. and greet you.

@ suprd71 - that little booger isn't afraid of anyone - will pick fights with the SD who's much bigger than him. sounds like a trouble maker.
