"I am an avid fan of the Central and South American genera of cichlid. Currently I house Red Devils, Jack Dempseys, Convicts, Green Terrors, and Oscars. My oscars are an absolute pleasure to behold. They reside in a 125 gallon aquarium with a pair of convicts (Bonnie & Clyde) and a common pleco (Spanky). The Red Oscar is named Pyro and the Tiger is named Damien. Pyro is approximately 6 inches and Damien is closer to eight. I have raised them both from the an approximate size of less than 1/2 inch. They are the most responsive fish that one could imagine housing. I maintain various aquariums, but the Oscars always eclipse the others to gain attention, food, etc. They are so lively and extremely playful. One of my greatest joys is watching them interact. I had never been a great fan of oscar cichlids and had only acquired these because a friend had bred the parents and was in the process of feeding the babies to other cichlids. I managed to "rescue" Pyro and Damien and I am happy that I did. They have changed my perception of Oscar cichlids. They truly are the ultimate "wet pet." They should not be housed in anything less than a 55 gallon for a single fish, but I would definitely recommend this fish to anyone in search of an energetic and interactive pet fish."
