Oscars are like the pet dogs of the aquarium world. Theyíre actually intelligent, know their owners. Mine follows me around the room and presses against the glass swimming side to side when sit in front of him.

Hahaha...where I live there are no aquarium shops within 60 miles. Besides 45 years in the hobby Walmart canít give me anything I canít handle. Plus I consider an act of mercy to get the Oscar out of there.

If you catch Walmart when they receive a shipment of fish thatís the best. The staff there does not know fish so after a couple of weeks I find them malnourished. Thanks are clean enough but too small. I was surprised at the price $4.34 for African Ciclids, $12.34 for Oscars, got a sweet red fin black shark for $4.95. Finally their warranty is 90 days money back if fish dies (with receipt and dead fish.) here are some Iíve bought from Wally World.Click image for larger version
