Just a couple pics of Ron and Vicky. They NEVER sit still and when I get close to the tank they go crazy so apparently they don't understand that the camera needs a half second or so to focus. One day I will sneak up and get some great focused shots. My new phone has a ridiculous 16 megapixel camera. These 2 do much better in videos.

The white one is actually a lutino. The older she gets the more gray her stripes get and her fins are very gray and jet black on the edges. I made the horrible mistake of putting them in a 10 gallon as babies. Just finished cycling a 55 gal and got them in there last weekend. It's only going to be big enough for 1 but for now they are about 5.5 and 4.5 inches and I also have a monster cannister filter and do frequent cleaning and water changes so the water quality and space are fine for them. I only have a limited time with both in there tho since they grow so fast. I'll end up getting another big tank and give them each their own home. I've actually only had them since thanksgiving weekend and they have pretty much tripled in size. I give them a super diverse diet. 2 kinds of cichlid pellets blood worms baby gammaras shrimp blood worms and krill. It really shows with how colorful they are and how fast they are growing.

They look good. Love the color of the red. Hope you can get that new tank soon. What kind of tank are you thinking of?

Try adding some veg/fruit to their diet like peas, bananas, etc. or even veg koi pellets (really cheap).

Thanks poseidon. Due to the size of tanks and available space I'm gonna have to do another 55. I will be extremely hands on with the maintenence testing filtration etc. I know that they would be better off in larger tanks but it's just really not and option for me. I will Def get some veg in their diet. They are far from picky lol. The red gets lots of compliments. He's really quite stunning and a total goober as far as behavior towards me. They both are actually. I never thought they would grow this fast and this forum kept them alive. I wish the pet store would have given me even a little insight to what they actually require to thrive and I would have only gotten one and had him right in a big tank to start.

Nice pics Bri. I always enjoy seeing shots of oscars. With my camera I just snap away until I get a lucky shot. :)

@oscar2015 - I thought they were your oscars. :laugh:

Thanks unc. That's pretty much what I do too. I have this amazing camera on my new phone but it needs like half a second or so to fully focus which they never give me lol. That's why the videos I post look awesome, it records in full 1080 HD

There is a 48" x 24" footprint tank made that is available as a 120g or taller show tank at 150g. Though a 6ft tank would be more an ideal tank with that water volume I would have no issue with housing two Oscars in it with a good filtration and maintenance routine.

Thanks Dmd that would potentially fit in my place. I'd have to do a little rearranging and obviously rent a truck or big suv and buy some beer for my boys to help me get it in and set up. Ideally I would get that kind of tank and keep them together as long as they continue to get along. They really are inseparable. They are on different sides of the tank maybe once a day for 20 seconds and side by side the whole rest of the day. They never even lip lock or bump each other around.
