jsdphilly created the topic: My Planted Oscar Tank

So I decided that Herman ( My oscar) deserved some real plants. I have had fake ones with him since I got him and he only occasionally moved them around (although he is super young still, but growing fast!) so once he gets bigger, this may all end up for nothing.

I began adding real plants around where the fake ones were, and slowly started replacing them...maybe he is young, maybe he is an oscar that likes plants, but he has been leaving them alone! He plays in them has ripped up a few, but largely, he seems to enjoy them.

I will try to keep this thread updated as the adventure continues!

This was the tank, pre live plants


This is the tank now, i have another batch of cuttings and plants coming this week, so by the weekend, I should be able to post some more pics!

Looks good, plants make for a healthy tank. If he leaves them alone, you have a rare Oscar!


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

I am hopefully, but highly cautiously optimistic.
