I can't believe I never even knew this forum was here, evidently I registered months ago but I don't remember doing it. I hope I'm posting this in the right place.
I've got mainly cichlids with my 4 Oscars being my absolute favorite. I've also got Angelfish, Discus, Blue Acaras (which might be Green Terrors lol), an Eartheater, Severums, lots of Clown Loaches, Betta girls, Cory Cats, quite a few fancy plecs & 2 commons, too many fish to name I guess.
I'm glad to have found this place, I've already seen a lot of good information and I've only been reading an hour or so.

rofl! Now THAT'S the kind of welcome I like :)
You all will be soooo sick of pictures, you'll be sorry you asked!
Here's my 4 Oscars:
My 1st Oscar and my special buddy, Inky (he's in the avatar):

My Red & Tiger Lutinos a few months ago:

My 5 1/2" Tiger. He's a HOOT! He's got this huge dip in his forehead and a long cool nose.

I've got so many fish but Oscars just FEEL right. They'll always be my favorite, too.
Like coming home after a long trip or something. Just comforting and familiar :)
And I've NEVER known a fish as smart as an Oscar. I can show my Red Oscar the food and if he wants it he'll come to the top, I can direct him with an arm wave to the end of the tank and point to food at the bottom and he'll snatch it up. All the little things that make them so endearing.

That's cool :thumb: :)
I think a LARGE Oscar species tank would be cool. I really wanted to get started on one this year...have a bunch of the stuff already, but we had an oppertunity to put in a rental above the shop we are building and we started it. It won't be done in time to start that project till next year :?
You should check out TheFishGuy's 800 gal set up...I think he said he had 11 of them in there...it's pretty sweet 8)

It'd be so hard trying to get that many that get along though. If you could base it on bio-load alone I'd go for it!

O's are awesome. On of my favorites jumped out and died a few months back. I have two new buddies growing up in a grow out tank. I have lots of CA/SA and Africans, but I'll ALWAYS have at least 1 oscar in the collection.

Welcome to the cichlid forum, ksane!
Nice oscars/pics...I enjoy seeing them here just as much as I've enjoyed seeing them over on the Ofish forum. :wink:

Thanks, guys :)
The one in my avatar is my 'baby'. He's just now a year old. It's because of him I ended up getting 3 more <g>
