Look at him, so far he loves that corner the most. Well my original plan was to do an mbuna tank but my wife and I saw this guy and he won us over really fast. He seems to be a bit shy of the light so I'm letting him get used to it. He roams all over when I turn the light off

Haha he sure does! Now he is swimming back and forth and up and down with the light on. Fed him 5 medium size omega one cichlid pellets and he ate em all. Great appetite and very active now

IShallNtEatFish 02-24-2014 01:17 AM

Yay!! Can't wait for pictures where he looks happy! And swimming around!

I know!!! He loves it, he told me so!!! I'm hoping to get eggcrate tomorrow to make a jump proof top cause I don't like carpet surfers

IShallNtEatFish 02-24-2014 01:40 AM

Awesome!!! Can't wait to watch him grow up! Maybe he will be the gateway to the fish world for your little one! My dad got a puppy 6 months before I was born so I grew up with her and she taught me to love animals. Maybe your little one will love him and fall in live with fish

josh7 02-24-2014 01:53 AM

That is an awesome little albino Oscar I always buy them small like that I love watching the little ones grow! Your tank will look great in a year when he's 12 inches though haha he will definitely fill it in. I like the rock setup to it looks good

Thanks bro!!! I like the fish a lot and the rock setup. He seems to like it too and weaving in and out of them. As he gets bigger ill remove some and make a nice cave for him

josh7 02-24-2014 01:56 AM

That will be great I wish I had some large rocks so my Oscar had a cave he's to big to get into the logs. I have built him a plant setup so he has some type of shelter to bad my Oscar destroys it every 3 days darn things like to move everything!

Haha goto a rock yard or landscaping company. I got 150lbs of rock (all those in the tank) for $15

josh7 02-24-2014 02:03 AM

That's not bad at all good find!

Haha yes I want a new light but I want a new filter first and then a light. I'm not sure on what light to get though. I want something that will make his white and orange POP!!!

Yes he was very unsure then. Now he is the king of the tank swimming all over and hunting for more baby fry

jwh0818 02-24-2014 12:19 PM

BTW, what is the best food I can feed him? Right now he will be getting omega one cichlid pellets and fry but what else? I know the pellets should be the main diet. Could I feed him fresh store bought shrimp? Or frozen raw shrimp? Seems more cost effective then ghost shrimp and safer.

Also how much do I feed him? He always looks hungry to me haha he is gonna be a fatty

IShallNtEatFish 02-24-2014 12:27 PM

I see a theme here fat fish fat babies

Brookster123 02-24-2014 12:33 PM

If your not doing plants maybe a marineland single bright led? Under a $100. I'm not sure about shrimp but I don't see why not?

jwh0818 02-24-2014 12:44 PM

I'm not a huge fan of the marineland lights. They aren't actually that bright. I'm gonna search around for a nice light but i can find anything ill just do a coralife fixture

Rivers2k 02-24-2014 12:55 PM

Looks great! Congrats! Oscars are fish. So friendly they have many dog like qualities. I love your set up as well.

Haha you had me wondering there

josh7 02-24-2014 05:02 PM

Here's what I feed my Oscar and nothing has gone wrong haha. I feed omega one shrimp pellets 4 times a week. Then I feed 1 frozen brine shrimp one day, then red wiggles one day them the Sundays I don't feed and let him cleanse out the digestive system haha. But as far as amounts go I fed my Oscar pellets 2 or 3 small feedings a day then when he hit 6 inches I just fed one larger feeding each day and I still just feed 1 large feeding and everything is going great!

One more piece of advice don't feed your oscar everytime it looks hungry since they are always hungry limit the food lol because trust me that little guy will always want more!

Just what I needed!!! So how is this, pellets as the staple 3 times a day, then frozen bloodworms every otherday taking 1 pellet meal out and on one day he will get to hunt fry through the day?

Edit, then im gonna buy wigglers and brine shrimp along with bulk orders of ghost shrimp and freeze them

josh7 02-24-2014 05:40 PM

That sounds good to me then skip one day so he can digest haha but how many fry are there jw and do you intend on any type of tankmate or are you just going to keep the solo Oscar?

Bro I have countless fry haha mollys produce like rabbits. I'm indecisive about a tank mate at the moment but I may look at a nice feather fin

josh7 02-24-2014 05:46 PM

That would look good I really like my featherfin and yah man mollies produce like crazy.

Candi1990 02-24-2014 05:52 PM

Yeah I think I'm gonna go with one in a few weeks, I'm battling the cycle after adding my seeded media in. Double dosing prime as well. 1 full dose every 12 hours to keep the ammo and trites non toxic for my buddy while I wait 24h for each 50% wc.

Thank you! I love him!!!

jwh0818 02-24-2014 07:43 PM

Forgot to ask, would a 4-5 degree water temp difference affect him? Tank temp is 76.6 and tap temp is 71.8-72 degrees

New fish, I wanted to show off!!!
 
No it won't the heater will heat it up quick anyway.

It took a few hours last night to reach 76

Edit* your right. It shouldn't drop below 74.2 and he isn't stressing at all. Just hiding because I have the hose out, I guess he doesn't wanna get wet. Haha

Edit x2* it reached 74.2!!!

josh7 02-24-2014 08:16 PM

You should be just fine as long as the little guy doesn't look stressed you are fine.

After looking at your Oscar it makes me really want another lol it sucks I go to college in August. Or else I would definitely be getting an albino Oscar I just haven't had the time to set up a new tank lol.

Take a tank with you!!!

jwh0818 02-24-2014 09:10 PM

Okay so it seems he doesn't want pellets. He just spits em back out if he does take em. Maybe because they are floating pellets?

josh7 02-24-2014 11:31 PM

My Oscar took forever to eat floating ones the sinking ones work much better IMO.

Okay so I did a 100% wc yesterday detested and trites were down to .50 did another 50% wc today because trites were way off the charts and here is the results after those wc's. Now will the prime actually keep those safe for him while its wrapping up the cycle?

convictcichlid 02-25-2014 01:52 AM

I like rainbows

cichlid22 02-25-2014 11:10 PM

Pretty albino oscar

jwh0818 02-28-2014 12:45 PM

So I'm placing an order for,

1000- ghost shrimp
500- red wigglers
Also picking up blood worms that are frozen. I have a plan to get him to eat pellets since that's gonna be his main diet. What else would be good to feed?

FishBoy185 03-01-2014 04:02 AM

Peas. Love your Oscar by the way. I remember my babay albino. Now he's 11 inches. Haha!

Thanks, ill add those to his diet if he is willing to eat some.

Todays parameters are,

Ammo- .50ppm
Nitrite- 2.0ppm
Nitrate- 10ppm

I did a 100% wc yesterday as well and redosed prime. I also added the seeded media and its stalling at these numbers. Any advice here?

that nitrite is way high! I'd do a couple 50% to get it down to .25 if possible.. How'd you go about a 100% change?

I removed fluffy, scooter the sand away from a side and took all water out. An hour after that trites were at .50ppm. 17 hours later they are at 2ppm with 10ppm of nitrates

Edit. I am dosing prime to keep the trites non-toxic every 12 hours

Brookster123 03-01-2014 11:38 AM

That's crazy! In a 75 gal?! Fluffy must be a doodoo factory!!

No he isn't, its because my tap water has 2ppm ammo and it keeps converting slowly to nitrites and I think that is stalling my cycle because I have to do a wc every 24 hours. Oh god my water bill is gonna be high!!!

I see your problem.. My tap has a similar kind if issue.. Prime was my savior. And my Lfs's chuck Norris bb! I guess patience is the game here.. I'd still try and stay ahead of those trites if possible..

I may just call one of my lfs and ask for seeded media. I dont like this store but its better then nothing. I'll examine the tanks before hand for and kind of parasites or diseases

if they are any kind of decent fish store they should be happy to squeeze out a sponge for you..

He said no, he said they sell a bottle of nutrifying bacteria that's 20$ and its supposedly really good if there is no chlorine or chloramines in the water

Nope not a single aquarium club for 45 miles. I offered to pay for it but he said no. I'm even going in to pick up 500 ghost shrimp for 30$ that should be enough to convince him!!!

maybe just talk to him for a bit, explain your situation and just how helpful his bacteria would be, he's probably just apprehensive because if he gives you any nasties than he'll be responsible..

jwh0818 03-01-2014 12:36 PM

Don't ever call petco and ask for advice!!! I called and explained my routine and the lady said I need to only change 10% of the water!!! Thats not even enough to put a dent in the nitrites!!!

Brookster123 03-01-2014 12:38 PM

Ya, most Petco employees know little to nothing about good fish keeping..

Yeah I know!!! My question to them was " what's the difference between seachem stability and nutrifying bacteria"


Anyone know that? Or is it the same

Brookster123 03-01-2014 12:42 PM

I think all the bottled stuff is basically the sane, it's not actually bacteria, it's just supposedly what bacteria wants/ needs to colonize fast.. I could be wrong though..

Also how much do I feed him? He always looks hungry to me haha he is gonna be a fatty


Well with an oscar u can feed him pretty much anything mine was 13inch and ate worms from my hand.(almost lost a finger there :D). But since he's a baby u could do meal worms, baby ghost shrimp. Wax worms. That's if u want I see him hunt. If not go with frozen bloodworms

I couldn't honestly tell you. Tap measure 0ppm. I am doing 50% wc every day to keep up with it to no avail. Seems the tribes hate me

Not that I know of but when I build the stand, I'm gonna drain all the water and remove all the rocks so I will check and stir the sand and full and drain a few times. It's gonna sick putting this tank on the stand because it will weigh empty with sand around 200 lbs and I have no one to help me move it! The trites have been steady like that since before I added fluffy

I can't remember, did you start with ammonia? Got a dolly? Move the old stand out, position new stand, put some boards between the two and slide tank up onto new stand! Easy!
