    I've been waiting a couple years to finally do this. All are enjoying their new home and are a lot more energetic than they were at the store!

    Note: As the fish increase in size, the aquarium will be upgraded as well. If all goes well, they should grow at the same rate.


    Here's some photos:

    1 oscar
    4 tinfoil barbs
    1 Plecostomus (catfish)

    my buddy has a huge oscar, he has jumped out of the tank a cupple of times, we have come home to find him on the floor, and he is still living, he will eat any other fish in the tank smaller than him.

    No, but he's investigated the bags they came in!


    My next project is setting up a larger aquarium. Right now, they're in a 15 gallon, which is about the minimum size for them currently. Within a month or two, I need to move them into a 55 or 75 gallon tank. Looks like I might have to prolong my new gun purchases :doah:
