I got a 12″ oscar from a friend, believe me, if you want nice things in your tank, ex. bubble wall or plants, do not get an oscar lol. they love to move everything around, which is a pain, but they sure do have a lot of personality. Mine enjoys minnows and goldfish, as well as Cichlid pellets. He’s very large, and is supposed to get bigger, cant wait.

Red Oscar are quite small and have a lot of bones. You must be careful not to overcook this delicious fish.

If you marinate the fish with lemon juice, vinegar and baking soda before cooking you can soften and make harmless the many small bones.
