:Welcome: to the forum!!

I've had an Oscar and they have quite the personality!! Great choice. Usually they say they need a 75 gallon for themselves. They get biiiggg!

I have had an Oscar and they have quite nice character if trained properly. Love there cool patterns and the way they can gulp down feeder fish with no prob. Bones and all!! It takes me like an hour just to eat a part of a fish with picking out bones, etc. They r amazing fish......

I have a baby that I got a month ago,, I have fallen in love with his personality! I just got him a 75 gal but won't move him yet he's still pretty little & is best buds with my female German blue ram right now so ill let them have their fun while they can. I have been researching whether or not I can put anything with him when I move him to his 75 & if so what would work best. I know their temperaments will change but he is very sweet & has never paid attention to any other fish besides the GBR. (36 with 2 zebra minnow & 3 cories at the moment)

You could prob put a convict and a firemouth in with him in the 75.

I think he's a lutino red... Not sure though that's just from my research. Red eyes but black outline on the fins & no patterns on his orange parts just solid

I actually put a baby convict in & the GBR hated him she has never been like that & my oscar was depressed so I seperated the convict & they are happy as can be again. The convict also terrorized all of them.
