I would love to have a peacock eel but I'm full on my tank.


Maybe I could get another eel now, and upgrade my tank to 75-100g within 6 months? They are all pretty small still, 4-5". It will be much harder to find a big eel to match with my oscar later on

Just get another 55g and let your Oscar keep that tank and put your eels in another tank that's what I would do

@chagoi
I just got a Whisper 60 Air Pump.


@Jonathon: Dojo's are alright. I really like the Fire eel and peacock eels.


@all the welcomes: Thanks!




My problem isn't just the oscar, I think it would be much easier to maintain without the Pleco. I've heard that pleco's are massive waste makers, that's why I was thinking about getting a different tank-mate for the oscar. Something that will cleanup like the pleco does, yet not produce as much waste. But it has to be something that won't be killed. Hard choice.

Yes that is a hard choice. Have you thought about..... well I'm clueless on this one. Lets think here a bit. How about a catfish, but they have just as much. I say just stay with the pleco since your Oscar doesn't have a problem with him
