Howdy everybody! I'm fairly new to the forum ( Just joined about 5 minutes ago ) but anyways I recently bought a Oscar at a mom&pop pet store near home. I was so pumped up to get one that I really didn't look at the Oscar very thoroughly, after bringing him/her home I noticed that it's tail wasn't the normal Tiger Oscar tail, it looks like a Betta fish tail in a way. It's longer than the normal tails, and not the same shape whatsoever. I was wondering if this is a genetic disorder that can possibly shorten it's life. It was on the expensive side as well, I paid 15.29 for him/her. So now I'm curious if it will change anything different from a normal Tiger Oscar. Like health, size, lifespan, etc. If I can figure out how to post pictures I'll get one up ASAP. Thank you for your time and help!

Need pictures to be sure but it sounds like you got a long finned Oscar.

I've had him for about a week now so he's in a 10G but when the new heater comes in a few hours, I'm putting it in the 55G and letting it warm up. The tank has been cycling for 3 days now. Just been waiting on the heater. I just uploaded a picture to Photobucket, I'll ge the link in just a second.
