So my fish are in and there awesome! I though id try a bit of feed just to see and they took it almost straight away, within an hour of being loose in the tank, the Oscar sulked for only 10 minutes!

It was sold to me as a tiger Oscar, although I'm certain he/she isn't what you would strictly call a tiger. I know they change colour as they get older but there's no sign of red anywhere on the body and changes colour really rapidly as well I'm not sure which means relaxed an which means stressed. It was completely olive green in the store with a sort of yellow eye on the tail. Then when the attendant put a bag in the tank to get water and instantly black stripes shot down its flanks and the remaining olive got really light, a yellowy white. It seems to be this colour when it's on edge, when it's close to the severum, currently it's arguing with itself and has it's stripes. The severum is really pretty as well and doesn't bother the oscarat all even though it's almost twice it's size.

And now that I have the light on he just went completely black.
