I am buying another Tank this week and would like more Oscars. I Live in PA and I'm looking for Blue, & Tiger Oscars. I've seen some that appear to look like they have CAMO as there Colors which is the Coolest thing I've ever seen. Please let me know.

FYI, blue oscars are those that have been dye injected or force fed color food. These fish generally die within a year due to this process.

You could always get a red, perfectly natural and very striking.

Are all Oscars "Died" or injected?

No, there are a few color variations, but the main colors you'll find are, red (red and black), tiger (orange and black), albino/lutino (true albino is pure white, lutino is white with orange) and wild caught, which tend to be kind of an olive drab color with the distinctive O on the tail.

Anything else, has been altered by dying or injections and should be avoided.
