I actually had to rehome both of then not only because they rapidly outgrew the 90g they were in but from the constant bashing of ornaments and the heater against the acrilic aquarium walls I was seeing hair line cracks and scratches 😨

I honestly didn't believe the Oscar could displace that much water but now it makes sense.. I was beyond PO'd when I came home and my stuff was soaked..

Long ago I had an Oscar. He would turn sideways and float to the top of the tank. Then knock the light and lid off. Once he did it a few times and there was water on the ceiling. I got off my lazy butt and fed him promptly.

Yeah I'm guessing I forgot to feed fat boy before I left so he was probably throwing a tantrum.. if he's fed he could care less about me... not like my flowerhorn or tire tracks... now if I didn't feed him he follows me around like a puppy...

Yep. I remember the big stare down well. And he would stay stationary in the center of the tank and his eyes would follow me. Like one of the Busts in the Haunted Mansion at Disney.

So this is my Oscar. I've had him for about a month and a half. I was wondering what would be his growth rate. Since I've got him he's grown about 3/4 inches.
On a side note my flower horn is way bigger than the Oscar so I couldn't risk putting them in the same tank. Which is why I had to create a partition in the tank.

From what I know of Oscars is they grow very fast! They are very messy eaters. They have the most personally I've ever seen in this hobby next to puffers. They are pretty much water dogs lol Click image for larger version
