Actually both #1 and #2 are "red" oscars. #2 is just albino. #3 is a "tiger" oscar.

LBoost- The change in color on your oscar is so dramatic. There seems to be alot more red. When did you notice this change beginning? He/She is beautiful

I think it started to look like that when it reaches 9inches +

That's when the growth rate slow down. It took it like 8 months just to reach 11 inches from 9 inches. That was when I started feeding it every other day. :thumb:

My first Oscar, just got him last Sunday.

It's only about 3-4" long right now, sharing an 80gal tank with a full grown JD and convict, but they all seem to be getting along. Sadly, he seems to be afraid of worms. I can tell he wants to eat them, but as soon as it starts wriggling in his mouth he freaks out and runs away from it.
