freshwater fish - astronotus ocellatus - red oscar stocking in 30 gallons tank - Cinnabar my Red Oscar, this is my favorite of all of them and I believe this one is a female but still not sure. At feeding time she likes to jump straight out of the water and has got my fingers a couple times, good thing she is only about 4 inches. The reason this one is my favorite is because she replaced the one oscar that I lost because it ate one of my plecos that was too big and I could not get it out of the mouth and it ended up choking on it, poor thing. I hope this one isn't as greedy.

freshwater fish - heros serverus - gold severum stocking in 30 gallons tank - This is Toe Jam, my sister named this one, he is a gold severum and recently just started showing this awesome coloring, good ole bloodworms.
freshwater fish - pseudotropheus socolofi (albino) - albino socolofi stocking in 30 gallons tank - My snow white cichlid, Avalanche, he pretty much runs the show in the 30 gallon, he hides in his rock and if anyone comes near it he lets them know, it is rather amusing.
30 gallons freshwater fish tank (mostly fish and non-living decorations) - My 10 gallon, not my best tank of the 3 but it will do for now, it has 2 angel fish, 3 tiger barbs, 1 feeder gold fish that I am fattening up lol 2 small algae eaters and 2 aquatic frogs.It has marbles a that thing in the middle I aquired from somewhere and used it a hiding place with a rock on top and a fake plant. The barbs are really entertaining chasing each other around, they don't even bother the angelfish...for now.
30 gallons freshwater fish tank (mostly fish and non-living decorations) - 2 oscars, 1 danio and a pleco in the 20 gallon, with a tuffa rock, marbles , a piece of slate, and a fake rock and plant. Right behind the couch, and a excellent place to watch them from. These 2 could be a breeding pair!!

More Info

Country: Canada
Description: I can't remember exact dimensions of the tank. They are all an aqua-tech tank and it came with all the supplies I needed. For now I have a 10, 20, and 30 gallon tanks.
Advice: I always hear about people not sure of what to use for the substrate, sand is good and so are rocks but for me personally I use marbles..they are so easy to clean and my fish can move them and pick food from between them very easily. Also when I use my fish vacuum the marbles move really easy out of the way and I never have to replace anything.
Fish Kept: I first wanted to say that I have 4 oscars and I am well aware that they need bigger tanks than the ones I have now, but aquariums are expensive so down the road I will be able to put them in bigger tanks. So the fish I have in the 10 gallon are 2 angel fish, 3 tiger barbs(yeah I know they shouldn't be together but all is well for now) and 2 aqautic frogs and 2 little sucker fish. In my 20 gallon I have a lemon oscar and a lutino oscar (they might be a pair I am hoping) and one danio he is too fast to be eaten and a pleco. And lastly in the 30 gallon I have way to many fish living in there together but I will be getting a new tank soon so in there is a red oscar and another lutino oscar, a gold severum, a snowwhite cichlid, a chinese algae eater and 2 plecos.
Corals/Plants: I do not keep real plants cause I know that my oscars will destroy them, I just use fake ones, I have some that glow in the dark, but really that does not do anything for the fish...my husband thought they were cool.
Tank Size: 30 gallons
Quote: none
About Yourself: I started out with just goldfish until a friend of mine got an oscar and then I was hooked when I saw that you could feed them worms and shrimp and grasshoppers and that they actually have some personality. My name is Chelsey and I am 22, I live in British Columbia Canada, and I have had my oscars for about 5 months now they are my favorite.
