What kind of fish is this?

Picked up this little guy at the store and was wondering if you could help me out and let me know what it is.

Nice looking fish... Looks like an Oscar, but not sure which type.

Looks like a tiger Oscar. They get big! What size tank is it in and what are its tank mates?

Did it look like this?
If you mean leopard ctenopoma, I had one for a couple years and it never looked like that.

I have to agree with you there. After looking at it a bit more it does look like a juvenille tiger oscar.

I think it's a tiger Oscar too but I didn't see any red in it only black and white. It's in a 75 with an arrowana and a royal pleco.

From the pic it looks very orange...

Is this a permanent home or a temporary home? IDK how an arowana will do with an oscar, let alone how an arowana will do in a 75 Gallon tank...

It's temporary. I have a 125 that I'm cycling right now for them. I figured since the arrowana stays at the top and the Oscar stays in the middle they would be fine together.
