is he vicious to the other fish or just the other oscars? bf is conserned he might mutilate the lung as he's pretty laid back(unless you'r a small goldfish. lol) also what r u asking for him?

I traded tippy for a fish for fish...

I dunno she traded me cause it was timid in her tank.. but he and my other oscar fight... IM not sure who starts what.. but they do fight... and as far as my gold fish its about 8 inches long.... ITS not mouth candy for him.. but he will chase him to....

Up to you... Im not really asking anything for him.. just wanna see him go to a good home... one he wont have to be moved again from...

Aww sorry it didn't work out.

The Oscar was the one getting picked on in my tank and that's why I had to give him away. So when I had him he was very timid, but fish will act different in every tank.

I had two oscars that were at approx. 2 pounds each!, as nice a fish as they are they left an awful mess in my tank as they ate a dozen minnows or worms every two or three days between them and splashed a lot of water around.
I got sick of cleaning the tank 8-10 times a month and reverted to a bunch of J D's!!

You know JB you could have just stopped giving them the minnows and worms so you didn't have a big mess. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol.gif They can and will eat other food.
