No shop buys them back they may give you a store credit but a very very low amount back

2 oscars will probably fight like crazy

I have never Hurd them called lemon Oscar before albino Oscar yes

Oscars are super messy fish what ever filtration you think will be enough double it

Say 4 peacock bass will be a good fish

Great colour and you will pay about £25 each they grow fast and a 10-12" peacock bass is worth £150-175

It's all about buying fish cheap and small and them making you money if you ever sell them that's how we move on in the hobby

Uaru are also a stunning fish that stay smallish and look great in a shoal of 4-6

Hujeta gar or freshwater barracuda would work fine. They max out at about 6-8" depending. They eat mostly live I trained mine to pellets though.

I thought the title of the thread was rare fish

Oscar of any kind are not rare they are very easy to find nearly every shop around the world has them

A 6' tank is plenty big. They are highly aggressive would do best alone. If you truly want a rare fish, 99% of the time they need to be housed alone for one reason or another

That's not exactly true every fish in my tank is rare and not housed alone

The best bit about a mixed pred comm is getting the right mix

I have had an Oscar before and the are baby dolls! Huge personality. I called mine Kissy. he would see me coming and head straight to the top and what I called kiss my fingers and then let me pet him. He took hot dogs right out of my hand! Yes I know that isn't the right food for them but I was 18 and I have in the last 18 years grown up and stopped feeding my fish strange things just to see if they will eat it.
