I came in for some specific information about breeding sets of Cichlids in general, Angel fish in particular, and had to consume the data on Oscars. I've kept Oscars on and off for three decades, glad to see they remain as enigmatic now as they were in the 90's. Such charismatic beasties, when my two teenage kids began angling for a more substantial pet, other than themselves, I immediately thought of a dog and went out and purchased an 80 gallon tank, matching filter and three 'puppy' Oscars, into which we hurled ourselves indefatigably....The kids adore the two survivors, and being lazy adolescents, now see the logic of not having dogs to clean up after and cats to ignore. We went on to adopting a pair neurotic Piranhas, affectionately named, Death and Dingleberry, not as friendly as 'Biscuit and Doorknob', the Oscars...but I do enjoy watching them doing their Benny Hill chase routine every time i pass by their lair. Lastly, to satisfy my daughter, we introduced the two Angel Fish, "Bill Cypher and Chip-two-point-Zero" to the menagerie. You'll all be relieved to hear, they have their own tanks, and are thriving to the point of procreation.

Welcome to the site, and a special welcome from a fellow Ontarian(is that the right term?lol) I am in North Bay. Angels not my thing, I am a keeper of the big boys, Oscars, big CA etc. Let us know how the breeding goes.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!
