Oscars @ Shedd's aquarium

Has anyone here been to the Shedd's aquarium in Chicago? A friend of mine and I went this past weekend. The amazon section was my favorite. The oscars there are HUGE! I mean, I am kind of a poor judge of size, especially through the glass, but I thougth these guys were pushing 16-17 inches! No joke. I was stunned. I thought my guy was big, and he's sittin at 13-14in. If I had to guess, I'd say that the big guys in those tanks had to weight atleast 3lbs or more. (I fish bass tourneys in the summer, that's what I'm basing my guesses on.) I took pics which I'll post when I get home, but there is nothing in the background to compare size to. Anyone else seen these guys and thougth the same thing? :eek:

these are ones I took at the Shed not long after they made the amazon exhibit. Hopefully I'll be able to get some good pictures there this summer when I'm up there again. They are pretty good size Oscars. When I was there 2 years ago I'd guess the were ranging from 12-15"
