Rcguerra created the topic: Countdown to my first oscar

Hello there,

My name is Rafael and I am, just like oscars, originally from Brazil. I have been in the USA for 18 years, predominantly in Florida, but now I live in Boston. I work in a weird combination of health care, academics and communication.

I am in the market for a baby oscar. I have a solid idea of what I want, and managed to get a really sweet deal on CL yesterday that pretty much gives me everything that I would prefer to not buy. So the delay is over, and soon I will come back with images of my new guy (or gal).

This is my second post, so my first one is about the technical aspects of my tank, please feel free to drop your findings there as well.

Thank you in advance for all the resourceful information that I know I will get from here.

Thank you OFL, I look forward to contribute to the group as well. I am a scientist on my 40s with a strong habit of diving deep down into the subjects I admire. I look forward to contribute to the group as well.

Once again, thank you for the welcoming message.

Meet the Oscar, yet to be named.


His oscellus on the left side of his body looks like an OMEGA. He is about 2.5" and is currently on a 60gallon tank (filtered, heated and heavilly planted). Ph is a little too high for my taste (7.6) but I am not going to bother for now.

As soon as he starts to terrorize the plants, he will be transfered to his permanent luxury tank.

Hey, he looks like a little beauty, congratulations. I'm sure I speak for others as well, we would love to see the progress of your little friend makes over the coming months, so try and document his growth with photos, maybe we could use them on the website if they are good enough.

Look forward to seeing more photos as he grows

I will have everything documented, with good quality images. Can't wait to have him/her on the monster tank.

Unfortunately, regardless of my efforts, this specific fish came in as part of a batch of 8 that were all compromised (apparently, digestive parasites). He did not make it.
