The Electric Yellow Cichlid I have is only about 3 inches at this point. I believe it is a male, but regardless, he has been great! Quite a trooper! I accidently ended up cycling a 30 gallon freshwater tank with him and 2 gold Gouramis. I've had him 6 months now and he is still doing great, wonderful color, eating good, and peaceful. No matter what, he is always beautiful and I'm not afraid he'll die at any moment! (smiles) He inspired me to do a new cichlid tank.
Sincerely,
Logan

Oscars, to me personally are fun to raise, although i have lost one due to water changes. i had 2 red oscars and 2 albino oscars, i lost a red oscar. mine are about 7 inches each in a 60 gal. tank. they do get aggressive towards the red one. their colorations are very beautiful. i would say these fishes are not for beginnners.

hi i am Rahul Patrick from New Delhi, India. I've had almost two dozen Oscars in the past one year and trust me they are the best. except discus, i have had all the so called exotic fishes. none come close to the oscars as adorable pets. right now i have five juveniles in a 70 fallon tank; ne pink, one red, two tigers,and an albino. there tank mates are two green texas chiclids, one of them being six inches long. these oscars love to eat aything especially if it is boiled chicken. i am waiting for them to grow and then would be shifting them to a new 200 gallon tank. thanks

I have 2 frontosa's and they love smaller fish for lunch. they do grow very fast as they are about 7-8 in with room to move in a 200 gallon tank.

We got Brutus when He was three quarters of an inch. That was six years ago. Today Brutus is six inches long and two inches wide. He's seen a lot of fish come and go over the years, and he hated them all! Nobody comes to Brutus's house! In August we got a Pangasius Catfish that was about an inch long. We call him Sharky. He's the only fish that has made it so far. Sharky is now nine inches long and growing. although he has some scars, he seems to be tough enough to take The Wrath of Brutus! I just learned on your web site that Sharky can grow to three feet long, so I guess my thirty gallon tank won't do! Heading out to spend some money at my local pet store, see ya!

oscars are great. i have three 10 inchers in a 200 gal. tank. they even do tricks like jump through a flaming hoop, and the one even tap dances!

Have 5 Yellow Labs recently transferred from 25 to a 33 gal. tank. I don't know why, but they seemed happier in the 25 gal tank - swimming into plants, harassing my 2 Corys and digging trenches in the gravel. The only occupant they (esp. the intensely coloured male) respected was my big kahuna of a Pleco. Perhaps, they are still adjusting to the new surroundings. I've arranged about 7 caves in their new home using Peridodite, Obsidian, and Sandstone, - and one hunk of Malaysian Driftwood. I hope I've not lowered the pH too much (by using the wood) since they LOVE HARD water. I'll try to add a few more snails for them to munch on. However, I still have to find a guideline to differentiate between the sexes, since the eggspot can reside on both Male AND Female...

I had two Red Devil's. The first one died right away. The second was pure white and lived for almost a year. Then I had a power outage in the winter and his/her tank was in the basement. Needless to say he didn't make it. He was the best fish I've ever owned. LOTS of personality.I had sand and marbels in the tank with my white devil. He use to move all the sand and marbels to the side until he hit the bottom glass panel of the tank. I'd move the sand back and he'd go at it again. When I had him I didn't have a "real" aquarium hood then so I used a desk lamp to see him at night. In the summer the lamp would attract bugs. He'd try to jump out of the water to get the bugs and bang his head on the hood.

If you're a person who wouldn't mind keeping a AGGRESSIVE fish that will attack you when you do water changes, needs to be kept alone (unless you can provide a huge tank 90+ gallons), and enjoy MAJOR personality this fish is for you.

hey i just got my oscar's about three months ago(pukey&rayray)unfortunatly pukey was beat up by rayray and did not recover. now it's just him and a blue acara who i fear is going to be eatin up by the oscar when i get my new tank which will allow him to grow much larger than the blue acara but i will deal with that when the time comes. other than that they are lovable energetic fish which if not watched and taken care of can be very messy. also they eat alot including smaller fish that they can swallow
