My Oscar and Heros Severus sp. "Rotkeil" tank.

Postby Rayko256 » Sun Apr 23, 2017 5:30 pm

2 albino tiger Oscars (5 and 6 inch)
1 red tiger Oscar (6 inch)
4 heros severus "Rio Negro"
1 Pleco (7 inches full grown)

They are in a 50 gallon tank.

Later on I will buy a 125 gallon or bigger.

Welcome to C-F

Nice looking tank. You should be looking to upgrade asap. In a 125 it's highly possible only 1 Oscar will work out when fully grown.

Very nice tank. A friend of mine has an Oscar that has an open wound. Do you have any suggestions?

I'd suggest starting your own thread in the 'Illness' section. Be sure to read the sticky on the top of the forum their, and provide the necessary information. Pictures can help as well.

Tank looks nice.

I would definitely upgrade that tank right away!!

some people say 55g for 1 Oscar in my opinion it's 75g for 1 Oscar, they grow to about 10-11 inches some larger.

and for 1 severum bare minimum is a 55g tank

for your stocking list your going to need a 250g tank.

if not your going to run into major issues when these beautiful fish get bigger.
