Re: Need Fish advice...the pet kind not food...
The reason im saying the tank is too small is the fish will not out grow their enviroment, kinda a built in survival mech. Oscars are not like piranas and only eat what fits in their mouth. More likely than not the existing fish will kill the Oscar over territory. Theyll nip at it pulling of its scales until it dies. The whole enjoyment IMO is watching your fish grow and caring for them, not just throwing some food in to the same fish every day. a 55gal is it tall or long??? you can enjoy the feeding frenzy in satges with young fish ie brine shrimp, then to guppies then to small goldfish as you go along youll need to invest in a feeder tank to save $ on feeder fish by buying by the hundred. ok nuff said for now I could keep going but dont want to be a blabber
