Size and Tank Recommendations: Lemon Oscars are known for their impressive size. They can grow up to 12-16 inches (300-400 mm) in length, making them a striking presence in any aquarium. To ensure they thrive, we recommend a spacious tank of at least  280 litres) or larger. Providing ample room for swimming and exploring is essential for their well-being.

Do They Have Teeth? Yes, Lemon Oscar Cichlids have teeth! These small but sharp teeth are primarily used for hunting and grinding food. Don't worry; they won't use them to harm tank mates when kept in a suitable environment.

Origin and Unique Characteristics: Lemon Oscar Cichlids hail from the clear waters of South America, specifically the Amazon River Basin. What sets them apart is their stunning lemon-yellow colouration, which intensifies as they mature. Their bright hues make them a true centrepiece in your aquarium. They are also known for their curious and interactive behaviour, often recognizing their owners and showing off their charming personalities.

Tank Mates and Water Parameters: Choosing compatible tank mates is crucial for a harmonious aquarium community. Lemon Oscars tend to get along with larger, peaceful fish such as Severum Cichlids, Silver Dollars, and various catfish species. However, it's essential to monitor their interactions and provide hiding spots to reduce stress.
