Figure_8 Posted January 27, 2006 Report Share Posted January 27, 2006 My 4ft tank underwent a bit of a revamp yesterday.. well more like a demolition really and everything bar the filter, heater etc was ditched, including fish (rehomed to jebo), plants, substrate and terracing. The whole tank is going to be redone to suit its new owner Roy Orbison who will one day hopefully be my big O. Right now all the tank has is a backdrop pic, a heater (24C), filter (fluval 404) , and bubblewall (which I put in after a massive direct waterchange where I aged the water in the tank prior to Orbi being introduced to enhance/speed aging. He's only little right now, but I'd like to set things up so that they are ok for when he grows too. Being a tank for an oscar I was thinking lots of swimming room, so keep the tank simple. Substrate of whitish riversand, a couple of large bunches of vallis at each end (I like the way it drapes over the surface of the water) & some driftwood in the centre. Does this sound ok for an Oscar? Also feeding.. How much do I feed this guy? He's about 6-7cm long atm & has been eating orca high protein pellets which the lfs had them on. I swear he would just eat the whole bag if I poured it in. I've given him 7-8 pellets (medium sized just slightly larger than bio-gold) this morning. Everywhere I search about food all I come up with is "yes they will eat anything!" Not overly helpful Being that they grow so rapidly I'm assuming they need a lot of food, but the last thing I want to do is overfeed him. Any other hints and tips would be greatly appreciated Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
