very nice sully ~ baby O's are cute...yes i feel you .. i'm banned from going to oscars section myself.

I'll share 'Drama Queen' -> 2 months old / got him about an inch / went through Ich, fin rot, bullying, hunger strike, soaking for days <-
He's 4 inches now .. :lol:








Took it this morning. Waters still yellow from DW leaching.

Some more great Oscars, I remember taking my 2 home on day 1 they were so small. I was extra careful not to drive to fast in case they got scared :)
Didn't help my car has coilover suspension that is rock hard and designed for the racetrack not rough Australian roads...

tehmole your O looks quite unique having so little tiger pattern, could almost call him a stealth Oscar :lol:

Nice shots, do him and the JD get along well?

@aus-car ~ he is strange... at times theres no red in him ... jet black ~ is it the food? -Hikari Gold-

@Matt ~ They have their own space .. most of the time they get along. At the beginning, the JD was bullying him ... now it's the other way around after my O got healthier.

going to post after i change everything to sand and rearrange the DW. any suggestions? Should i pile them up on one side? (there's about 4 pieces - mid -> large)

For your DW, if the pieces are big enough, I did a kind of root structure in my tank. I need more to finish it out, but the P's love having the hiding spots. I just took the DW and angles it from the top and buried the "roots" in the sand. I'd like to get some more plants, and possibly some leaf litter to make a more realistic biotope.

I'll get a pic up of what I've done, since we all know a picture is worth a 1000 words ;)

This is about 2/5 of my tank, like I said I need more DW and plants, but this is what it will look like throughout the tank when it's all said and done.

Mine is grapevine, not technically DW, but it does work for what i'm doing in the tank.
