Don't forget these...

  1. Tank Setup:

    • Provide a large tank of at least 75 gallons for juveniles and even larger for adults, as Oscars can grow quite large.
    • Use a substrate like sand or gravel and include hiding spots with rocks and driftwood.
  2. Water Parameters:

    • Maintain a temperature between 77-80°F (25-27°C).
    • Keep the pH level around 6.5 to 7.5.
    • Ensure water hardness between 5-20 dGH.
  3. Filtration:

    • Use a powerful filtration system, as Oscars are messy eaters and produce a lot of waste.
  4. Tank Decor:

    • Include sturdy decorations, as Oscars may rearrange the tank.
    • Live or artificial plants can be added, but Oscars may uproot them.
  5. Diet:

    • Provide a varied diet of high-quality pellets, flakes, and live or frozen foods.
    • Oscars appreciate occasional treats like earthworms or crickets.
  6. Social Behavior:

    • Oscars are territorial and can be aggressive, especially during breeding.
    • Keep them singly or in a large tank with compatible mates of similar size.
  7. Compatibility:

    • Avoid housing Oscars with smaller fish, as they may be viewed as prey.
    • Choose tank mates carefully, considering their size and temperament.
