Thanks for your comments.

It's not so much a "fake" cam but its not a digital still camera, lol. the photos were taken with a video camera and i just snatched out one of the frames. It makes it quite easy to get a good pic but the resolution is not very high.

I just bought the oscar today and so far he's been too worried about the little fishies i've put in there for him to eat rahter than chewing on the plants.. I hope he doesn't destroy the plants too much.

Dont mean to be one of the but " hope u know type guys". But feed fish to the oscar less often and as more of a treat. It's perfectly fine if not good that you gave them to him to get him comfy. My point is not " oh poor little fishes". My point is that they can carry disease in their stomachs and if im not mistaken minnows are not the most cared for of all fish!

Just a little extra info

How large is the oscar, and how large is the tank?

I currently have three that are approaching 6 inches, which is about half grown on average. They have two rather large sword plants as a test to see if they'll leave them alone. So far they've nibbled them some over the past 3 weeks, but mostly left them alone or 'slept' between them. They seem to enjoy having them.

If you want to feed your Oscar live fish, consider getting a 20 gallon tank and a pair of convict cichlids. That way you have a fairly unlimited supply of convict fry (200-300 every 3-4 weeks, and they grow to good feeding size within 4 weeks) that you can be fairly sure are disease free. Buying feeders from the lfs is always a risky decision.

The tank is 160 Litres, which i think converts to 29 - 30Gals.
Thanks for the tips. I will have to save up a bit of money to get another tank for the convicts and I dont really have enough room, but i'm sure I could squeeze it in my house somewhere. . Well anyways thanks for the tips.

Off to sleep for me, its 1am here in western australia and i'm tired.
