my 14 months old oscar at 12 inches long


and yes, growth will slow down at that stage... wherein body mass will
develop further. you will notice the body will become thicker...

confusing...
It's the mass of the food you feed to your O, that will create your bioload.
For example my Tiger is a few inches smaller than my red, but the Tiger will eat at least 60% of all the food that is tossed into the tank.
So it's not only size that matters, but a healthy appetite creates a bigger bioload.


My red grew upto 10" in a year and growing. The tiger has just past 7" and is growing fast.

yes, finally a reason for everyone to put a pic of their O's up. Necro, cool Oscar pics. I like the colors of your O in the first pic. all the other O's are great also.

My Red O went from 2" to almost 6" in about 3 months. He continues to grow very fast. I think Red O's grow the fastest and are the most aggressive (my theory based my own experiences)

I agree with Cebo! Necro, your oscars are gorgeous! Especially the first one. Very vibrant colors! :blink:
I hope this link works... This is my oscar back in January. She is about 5".
