Nice setup. It must be nice for your Oscars to explore

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

WOO HOO! I'm finally getting some ammonia readings upon testing the new tank. The process has begun.

Hopefully it may be fully cycled in another 2 weeks (maybe.)

I am moving Jake and Elvira into their new quarters tonight. They are now approximately 4-1/2" and 4" respectively and their new tank seems to have cycled out in slightly more then 3 weeks, thanks to seeding it with well established gravel and adding a dozen small zebra danios to it. I am going to raise "feeder fish" guppies in the smaller aquarium for once a week treats. Once the feeder tank is functional, I'll post some photos and results too. in the mean time, I wouldn't want to be one of those dozen danios..:(

Post Script:
The Oscars are making themselves at home in their new tank. It was a chore to net them, even after I emptied half the aquarium water out and removed most of the decorations. As for the Danios? I've never seen a "tighter" school of fish. I wouldn't doubt that some die of stress overnight. These Oscars are still like two peas in a pod, swimmimg side by side most times.

My little Babies are starting to become big babies, approaching the 5" size. I really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really want a 125 gallon aquarium of 6 foot length, but that would need to go in living quarters on the first floor and would have to gain my wife's blessing. I am hoping as the Oscars get older and bigger that I can eventually convince her that the Oscars need it. Maybe in the autumn I'll make my move and ask her nicely.....

They have changed dramatically from those photos here. They are both now a dark green color with copper /pink highlights through their bodies. Thanks! :)
