Oscars aren't the only fish that uproot plants. I've had a few (fake) plants mysteriously become uprooted. All along, I have blamed the Oscars.

I just caught the Severum "red-handed finned" grabbing the plants with his little mouth, shaking them and pulling them out :laugh: :laugh:

I just wish my camera was handy at the time.

Yeah that's true, my Jack Dempsey pulls fake plants out all the time. If they get in his way he just grabs em and yanks them out.

I have a tank with a few Jack Dempseys and one Lutino Oscar. The only live plants I have had any luck with whatsoever are moss balls. They roll them around and play with them, but they don't tear them up. :)

Has anyone had any luck at all with live plants and Oscars? Anyone? :huh:


I just planted my tank! every plant I have is in a pot. I have two mason jars with swords in them and a bigger glass jar type thing with hair grass and two mini terracotta pots with baby tears. so far so goo no interest in the plants. and it looks so pretty!!!
