"My aunt has always really liked what I call "pirate fish." I have nothing against hybrids, so I looked up some info on them. Some said they'd be fine with an oscar, some said they'd fight. I wasn't going to get one until I went to my local fish store the other day and saw these HUGE 8"+ BPs. I had been wanting a friend for my 8" oscar, but figured he'd rip the little ones to shreds if I even tried. Seeing such big guys for only $25 sealed the deal. I picked out the biggest one (mostly a deep orange with some black on his fins and underbelly) and immediately named him Shamu. As soon as I got home I placed his bag in my 125g. Felix, the oscar, seemed mildly curious, but didn't pay much mind. I released him into the tank, and Felix swam over to him right away. He opened his mouth as wide as I'd ever seen it and viciously attacked him. The BP wasn't fighting back. I turned out the lights, hoping to give him a rest from the beating, but it went on all night. When I woke up the next morning, Shamu had some scales missing, but was otherwise okay. Felix wasn't going after him anymore. From then on they were buddies. Now they swim together, beg together, and even dig in the same sand pit together! The pirate fish even learned to eat from my hand, and when there are pellets at the surface, he'll sort of "bob" out of the water, looking just like the whale he was named after."
