Looking good. How about some shots of the other fish too?

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

Fatguts is looking good ... looks like a happy oscar. I bet his behavior has changed a lot now that he's the only oscar in the tank.

FG will probably colour up more as he gets older, but while a good diet will dictate how bright/vibrant those orange patches are, the extent of orange patches is more of a genetic thing.

There's no 'best diet' really, but a good mix of foods plus a supplement like Boyd's Vitachem (you'll have to order it online) works well. Mine gets Hikari biogold/gold pellets, plus veggie pellets, peas, freeze dried krill, prawns, and occasionally other random things (zucchini, mango, banana etc). I soak the FD krill, prawn and peas in vitachem, and the pellets sometimes too.

Most important things with O's is to make sure they get enough vitamin C in their diet. For colour, foods containing vitamin A will help make the orange more vibrant.

The most colourful oscars will always live in tanks where they have really clean water though, but if you're keeping nitrates low and feeding well the rest is largely genetic.
