Nice pics :)
I just scrolled down the first time without reading and i thought i was looking at 4 oscars. He`s a real little chameleon!!

The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.

Thanks guys

Lupin is still changing colour quite madly; I thought it might just be a disorientation thing, maybe not. I't would be nice if he added another colour to his pallet, but if he doesn't I'm not bothered. He seems to be swimming up against the edges of the glass a lot, I think he's just looking for the fish store food.

Niether of them seem to be eating quite as much as I'd like, but I'm happy with it just eating something for now.

Both of them, have figured out the pipe, admitadly snape figured it out first. I will get better pics up when my gfs phone is charged.

Thanks for all the help guys; I love my fish!

Jenn27's sig shows an oscar that looks like it has the same color pattern as Lupin with no orange or red (She'll be able to tell you for sure).

You'll see a change within 6 months. Enjoy them now why they are still young!

Yep....as Rocksor said, my Groucho is the same color! In my signature, is Groucho as a baby (about the size of yours. In my avatar, is him just a month or so ago. He changes colors quite a bit, and after I brought him home (for the first few months) he was olive color. After I changed his background to black, his true Tiger colors came out. But, when he gets freaked out, he does turn white as a ghost. Enjoy your new little Tiger O. ;)

Very cute fishies!! Nice tank, too. :laugh:

We have had our Groucho (Tiger O) for over a year now...have watched him grow from 2 inches to pushing 11 inches! LOVE watching him swim around in his little 55 gal world. :lol: We also have a fancy goldfish and a black moor in a separate tank. We love our fishies!...[IMG]

Remy Bosio replied the topic: Re: Got my fish!!

The ability to change color is atributed to "biochromes" in the skin or just below the skins surface. These changes are autonomic and done by the brain when he fish or animal experiences drastic changes in it's environment. I sort of like to watch my 5 member Oscar family do the color chart routine! :laugh:

I notice when they are in a shy mood some of them are a pale grey/brown.
