"I discovered this site a few months ago, and have become a huge fan of it's informative and interactive format. So, Bravo to the Animal-World team for their contributions to the overall comprehension and well-being of our beloved animals. I currently have four Oscar cichlids, a tiger named Thor, a red named Medusa, and two lutinos named Ringo and Rawhide. I have kept aquarium fish for more than twenty years, and the Oscar fish have always been my favorite. There is no comparison in terms of interaction and "wet pet" status. I've read where Green Terrors, Red Devil, and Midas cichlids have all been equated with the Oscar as a celebratory wet pet. I've kept multiples of all those fish, and while extraordinary in their own right, in my opinion, they are no where near equal to the Oscar as "wet pet". In my opinion, the level of of intelligence and responsiveness in the Oscar is unsurpassed. The aforementioned cichlids are far too aggressive to be considered really interactive. They defend their territory (whatever they feel that might be), to an extreme that would inhibit any attempts to clean or water change. With the several Oscars I've housed over my twenty years in the profession, the only "major" aggression would occur when there were eggs or fry are present. That's not to suggest that I have not had the occasional "mad dog" Oscar, but, statistically, they have been far superior to all other cichlids I've maintained as "wet pet." I said all this to say, that if you are considering a "pet" for your aquarium, with all things being equal, the Oscar is the absolute BEST choice...without a doubt, Just ensure that you have the proper housing, as they are large fish. As a minimum, 55-75 gallon aquariums are required to adequately house one."
