TIGER OSCAR - 6cm
Oscars are infamous for their aggression, which is hard to imagine since they swim so gracefully, but they prove that looks can be deceiving. Those who are brave enough to keep them may initially be attracted by their appearance and colours, but quickly come to appreciate their intelligence and social behaviours.
Oscars are certainly some of the most personality-driven fish in the hobby, and can actually have so much personality that their territory may extend beyond the tank. They will investigate any goings-on in the room and can bond with their owners on a level that the smaller cichlids don't. They can be taught to roll over for food and can even learn to enjoy being petted. Sometimes they act prideful or spoiled and can be sensitive or moody. This fish can also be demanding, behaving just like part of the family!
These are temperamental creatures that should only be looked after by experienced fish keepers. As omnivores, they’re easy to feed, but it can be hard to find suitable tank mates.
