Well Ive been away from Oscar fish keeping for a little while but Im back with a new project...

I lost a wonderful Rapps Bumblebee Oscar a few years back due to a bacterial infection I just could not cure. While it did not stop my fish keeping since I had my 300 gallon community, it did stop me from keeping Oscars for a while.

I decide to do a new project, Wild Columbia Oscar that came from Wet Spot.

Some details regarding project Wild Columbia.

Fish are only 1.5" at this point so they can not go into my 300g that has larger fish in it. They are currently in a 65B with an Aquaclear 110 filter, Aqueon 250w pro heater, Current USA LED light.

The plan is to really only keep one of the Oscars for the 300g but to grow out 3 and pick the best one. I have a buddy who will likely take one, so will have one left to find a home for. Since they are so small Ive had to buy food in their size and knowing they wont stay this small for long, I decided to use the Fluval Cichlid Bug Bites food. They have taken to this right away. I also bought frozen blood worm and beef heart. I know the beef heart is not the best long tern choice and will just be used for a short term growth time to get them to bulk up. The hope is about three to four months to be able to move them into the 300 but Im thinking they will grow fast.

The grow out tank is in my garage next to a utility sink so water changes are a breeze and quick to do, so the goal is lots of clean water and food to pack on the size.

Attached a couple pics

One is of the Oscar that I see with the most potential due to really cool pattern and the other is a group shot of the little guys

Not my video but this is what they hopefully turn out like
