My Pet is a Murderer! -pics
    #3171836 - 09/23/04 10:00 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

i woke up this morning and found this little guy dead. i kind of sensed he was being bullied, but he's supposed to be compatible with the oscar fish i have. i scooped him out with this container.

it's a white tipped shark catfish and he was real hyper. always shooting around the tank .



here's the killer. he's a big bully. smartest fish i've ever had.
what a jerk though.


he's a tiger oscar.


not cool.

Oscars are cool fish, but they do have the murderer in them. About the only fish I found that was tough enough to live with Oscars are other Oscars of the same size and armored Plecostamus'.

yeah, i have one of those plecos. it's funny because the oscar acst like he's the boss, but then the chill ass pleco just strolls by and pushes him out of the way.

but damn..i wanted some variety in the tank. know what i mean?

Yes, community tanks are great, but Oscars aren't the most sociable critters, to say the least. Have you thought of getting another tank for a community tank?

lol, no variety when ya got an oscar. them and ciclids are such bullies. i have always wondered what would happen if you had a similarly sized oscar and a convic ciclid. total bloodshed i would bet, but the oscar would own all once it grows.

one of the stores here had decentish success adding those green puffers. but imo that is retarded, puffers need more salt than an oscar should ever have.

stay away form larger fish and ciclids (well at least african ciclids) and you can have a pretty bitchen comunity tank.

Oscars Eat anything, fish,hotdogs,steak,table scraps,nightcrawlers,anything you can catch in your yard, etc....

Them can be kept with most species of fish

So long as the oscar is half there size. They don't tend to be territorial. More they are drivin by hunger

My Oscars are huge' They would eat a kitten if you drop one in the tank

They live with two 3 pound Jack Demseys but they have been togher since they came into my house. So I think they like each other.

Past experience tells me if a oscar is Bigger than 4 inchs anything you put in the tank he feels he can fitt into his mouth he is going to attack.

Oscars are very cool fish once they get over 2 pounds. Very much like a cat.

My friend had a pacu that dominated the oscar waters. It wasn't a mismatch in size either.

i've thought about getting another tank and i don't really want to. but once this tiger oscar gets big, i'm gonna have to. so this tank will probably end up either a nice colorful community tank with lots of small happy fish, or i'll just sell or just use it as a PF fruiting chamber..i don't know.

chinadoll, what do you mean?
