Heylady where abouts in FL do you live? I know a couple good places around me that have some good Oscars. Thats if you decide to get another O. Once again sorry for your loss.

Thanks everyone!

I've actually been thinking about getting a flowerhorn instead. I kind of waffle between the two - oscar/FH, oscar/FH - I think about the big goofy oscar and then I think about the FH and their markings and I just don't know! I think what it will come down to is which fish I come across first and the awww factor... :wink:

Not going to have gravel or sand. Gonna go bare bottomed instead!

And why not get both an oscar and a flowerhorn? I just don't have the room for both!! But believe me I'd love to have both!! :D

No, I don't think the pleco had anything to do with it at all. Irwin the oscar was not vicious towards the pleco but he sure didn't tolerate anything from him. Good point though as it can be a problem sometimes!!

I have decided to go ahead and get another oscar. I just miss his big goofy face and the way he would gulp up his food and how he and the dog would race from one end of the tank to the other, I miss his nice coloring (yes I will try and get another red O if I can!), his supreme largeness, and the way he would get all mouthy if I crouched down in front of the tank!! I am feeling well enough to take that gravel out tomorrow then I'll do another big water change. After that I will start looking for a new O!! :thumb:
