Wazzabii808 created the topic: Santa UNDER ATTACK !!

So I was browsing a fish shop before my optometrist appointment and noticed this big guy kept in a sump tank with water not even enough to cover his body height.

Long story short I brought him home for quite a good deal ($30), he's just under 12inch.

Since he's big, (almost) red and its almost Christmas, we call him SANTA :laugh:
.... and GOT AMBUSHED by the 2 old masters of the tank. Luckily he's an old grumpy santa who can stand up for himself

interesting name.

i like the no substrate setup. i am sure waterchanges are a breeze and the tank stays very sanitary.

good luck with the new fish.

LOL the severum and geos have moved on now .... only 4 Uarus, an angel and 2 oscars atm. I moved the more aggressive red O to a different tank, so that Santa can settle in without too much stress.

Tank is around 200gals i think and will be the home only for 3 oscars later.

Tough decision sometimes but cant add more tanks all the time

Great job on saving the Oscar. And all those fish look great ! But I do feel like I have to point out that three is generally not a good number. Usually two of the Oscars will team up against the third one. So I hope that even after Santa gets settled in you will keep them separated.
