Nina_W created the topic: Show Off your Red Oscar!

While we often disagree about things on this site, there is one thing that we can all agree on:

Red oscars are simply the greatest. ;)

With that in mind, grab your camera and show off that sexy red oscar of yours! We desperately need a thread showcasing the greatest of all the oscar colours :silly: B)

Here's mine:

Wicket says "HI Ofl!"


"look at my pretty reflective scales! So coppery and wonderful :) Contrasts beautifully with my green head. I'm a modest oscar too"


"Nose down, because I'm secretly more interested in possible scraps in my gravel. But I like the attention, nonetheless."


and this is Wicket getting a 'hug'. If I put my hand against the glass, she comes and lies flat against it, much like she's doing here. And sometimes, she initiates this, by tapping against something until I pay attention to her, then lying down until I place my hand against her. She will sit still for a few moments, then move off, satisfied. She went and lay down during the picture sesison, and I snapped a shot of it before giving her her hug.


And here's Wicket and Lazarus, who looks smaller than he is all bent up like that. But they're cute together, aren't they?



Now show us your most magnificent fish :)

Really, I'm not, but I'd love to see piles and piles of pictures of red oscars :) I was hoping the winky faces would show I'm not serious.
I was considering starting up a 'tiger oscar' and a 'white oscar' (for lutinos) thread as well (with exactly the same text), but I don't have any pictures of my own to start that off with.

It's just because you're new, we've all been there. The email address is Penn@PennWooding.com, the relevant threads for more info would be here:
oscarfishlover.com/forum/55-photo-contest/278135-october-potm

and here:
oscarfishlover.com/forum/55-photo-contest/57505-monthly-photo-contest-rules

To upload pics, you need to upload them first to a third party hosting site, like photobucket or tinypic, and then you post the 'IMG' code that the site gives you here (you'll see the code if you click on the picture you want to post)

The reds are fantastic - keep them coming!

Streetsmart, I'm sure you're just being modest. Let's see your beautiful oscars :)
