the metal brace would work. Not quite sure what you mean by blue stuff, though.

Ive seen videos of people building aquariums themselves and using this blue stuff as a water tight sealer, I also went to a Big Als near me who had a very large tank build into a cement wall, and the cement was coated in this blue stuff im talking about. And so a metal brace it is, because I dont think that will effect the resale price or anything as much..

2. the tiger is already coming around on its own term.
3. just be patient with them.
4. they should be fine.

I think they switch roles sometimes.. I know it sounds weird, but im starting to see some aggression aswell :/

From the Tiger... Again.

Its not full out chasing and non stop fighting, its just when the Lutino comes up to my Tiger and if he doesnt want to be followed he will let him know with a little nip

Also yesterday during feeding, since my Lutino has poor eyesight its harder for him to get pellets during feeding times, and the Tiger oscar got Three pellets in a row! without giving my Lutino a single pellet. Well, when the tiger grabbed his third pellet my Lutino didnt seem to be happy, at all. So he grabbed onto the tigers jaw and started going NUTS! My boyfriend tapped on the glass not knowing what else to do and they stopped grabbing onto eachother.

Im not really sure who is the dominant one yet, but they seem to switch it up.

And im not happy enough with my tank to enter into any compitions yet :P

feed with the lights off on top of the tank. It might help the lutino.

We have 3 small feeding holes in the top of the tank, ill get a picture some time, but were starting to feed to Lutino at the side holes because he can sprint faster and longer then the Tiger oscar so the Lutino gets the pellets when we drop them in at the sides, and the Tiger gets fed from the middle.

2. honest, both weezy & ralph are looking good.
3. yes, oscars do switch role!
4. be patient with them.
5. it is part of oscar growing pain when they start lip-locking, head-butt, losing a scale or two etc.
6. btw, excellent shots.
7. well done.
