Rated 4 out of 5 by AboutOscars I have an Oscar and they make vary good pets but they take a lot of work. They can get a disuses called hole in the head, and its from lack of space, and feeding them gold fish. Gold fish are the main reason why Oscars get hole in the head. For some reason Oscar's are the only fish that mainly gets this disuses and only seems to acre when they get 8+ niches. You can prevent this disuses by giving your fish by a 55+ gallons tank and DON'T feed them Gold fish even though its fun to watch but roses reds are fine. They can get 14 inches so be prepared for a big fish and a lot of work. I wouldn't recommend these fish for a beginner because of the size and what they can get if not taken care of right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fishlord My oscar is a very handsome fish! Such a gorgeous addition to my aggressive 20 gallon fish tank. So far he is very happy with and gets along with ALL his tank mates! He lives with 1 jack dempsey, 1 dinosaur bichir, 2 bala shark, 1 pleco, 2 opaline gouramis, and 1 tiny blue crayfish. I have lots of hiding places for all fish, but Oscar never hides. He prefers to stay close to the surface while the others like to be around the bottom. Oscar has a huge appetite! More than any other fish I've had. He eats so much but his belly never seems full!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigoscarlover BEAUTIFUL!!!
I love my Oscar. I've had him for about a year and a half and he's fantastic. I had him in a 36 gallon with mollies until he got big enough to completely bite the head off of them. So I added 2 Jack Dempseys in the tank and put my other semi aggressive fish in my smaller tank that the Dempseys were in. As long as he is bigger than the faster and more aggressive cichlids, he will be fine. If you want a smaller tank, Oscars will be fine in it, no matter what the "experts" at petsmart say. All fish grow to the size of their tank. They prefer their specified tanks or larger, but they will be fine in smaller tanks. My Oscar is about 7 inches now with the dempseys being about 5 inches each. He's slow but it's alpha in the tank. Great fish and I'd suggest them to anyone who likes dogs because they know when their owner comes in the room and get excited. Love them.

Great Colors, Keep them alone for best results! I have mine in a 10 gallon but as they get bigger you should upgrade tank size
