:D :D :D

Rescued from a 20 tall. Poor guys. The QT tank they're in now is bigger than that...
A friend of mine picked 'em up for me. They were free :D The tiger has a scar below his jaw, looks like they were lip locking. He also has a few missing scales, but other than that, they're in pretty good condition! I was surprised they had no HITH too :D

They never leave each others side.

Here's the "albino:"


And here's the Red Tiger:


And here's them both :D

Dang, you did good to get your hands on these guys, Art---they look great!
Hard to believe they were part of a rescue because they look so healthy, but getting them out of such a small tank is definitely just that...a rescue...and should be commended as such!:wink:

Nice work, and excellent pics. :thumb:

Thanks BV. Yeah! They have a tad bit of HITH and a few missing scales but other than that they look great! :D

I think thats a tiger snow oscar (no red eyes). They are both beautiful. So much for {growing to the tank} huh?
Techinacly, they're the lutino form of Astronotus Occelatus. They have lots of common names like "albino" and snow oscar :)

Awesome condition considering what size tank they were in - nice find.

I need to stay away from this forum - every time I come in I seriously consider which tank I could empty for an oscar. They've got some super red's at the LFS right now for 20 a pop at 8"...red all the way through the face and not hormoned, so tempting.
