Woah, never heard of that one. That's just awful...

And yea, mine is just a juvie, not even four inches, so no need to get a 75g just yet. I will if he needs it though. When you get a FH, you start treating it like a baby.

At first I wanted an oscar too, one of the rio negro ones. But, I saw Sebastian at the LFS and was in love.

All my pictures are blurry of him and when I first got him. He has a lot more purple on his tips now. You actually influenced me to go get some newer pictures.

I had 2 tiger oscars as much as i liked them IMO i there is no comparison.. You should consider all options before making your decision.. Having a huge tank housed with just one fish dosent work for everyone

Well, he is a blue titanium. He has the one flower on his tail.

And yea, once you have spent anytime around a FH, you are sold. Their intelligence blows me away. That's why it's so hard to get a picture, he watches the camera, so I can only get head shots, instead of his whole body.

Haha why doesn't he have a hump? Is it because he's young?

And I wouldn't mind having a large tank with just one centerpiece fish. I like the larger fish more too. You can get more attached when they show more personality
