I've had many oscars and they need more than 36 gallons and grow regardless of tank size , they will become stressed and may develop a disease or get Hole in the Head if not properly placed in 55 or 75 gallon tank . I've had 2 Oscars in a 75 gallon and they did fine , grew to 12 inches and stayed healthy, as far as feeding them DO NOT FEED THEM GOLDFISH. Pellets, blood worms , beef heart ,and occasionally live crickets and super worms . One important thing , Use 2 large hang on back filters or a large canister filter , or both ! Don't under filter the tank .

I'm not a big fish fan, but even I am unable to say these fish aren't amazing. They grow huge and have a tune of personality and are SMART. All fish to some degree are interesting to watch, but these more so in my opinion. Some are even friendly to the hands that feed them allowing you to interact and rub them. If you have a nice big tank then you have to try oscars. I wouldn't doubt that when you do you'll never want any other fish species but them.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-06-24</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2015-06-24" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="81366882"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Tiger Oscar Cichlid" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">paige101</span> from <span itemprop="name">favorite fish</span> <span itemprop="description">this fish is amazing it is a beautiful fish that gets big so make sure you have a big tank. but be careful because this fish is very aggressive.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-06-27</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2015-06-27" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="151859174"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Tiger Oscar Cichlid" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">badnat4</span> from <span itemprop="name">need a big tank</span> <span itemprop="description">I have a 125 with 2 of these and some clown loach they love it.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2017-02-20</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2017-02-20" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="85268599"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Tiger Oscar Cichlid" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Fish5907</span> from <span itemprop="name">Awesome Fish!</span> <span itemprop="description">I have had 4 ocsars for a very long time. There life span is a long time. I don't remember when I got them. At least 7 years ago. I teach them tricks. There very quick learners. But be very careful. The tiger Oscars specifically like to jump. I have albino and tiger Oscars. The albinos are calmer and don't jump as much.(jumping is more as they get bigger.) The Oscars get as big as the tank will let them. But not like African cichlids, I have them in the same tank and not near as big. The Oscars I have , the baby is about 7 inches and the other 2 are 10 inches. These fish are very colorful fish. Despite what the store will tell you, the albino tiger oscar and the tiger oscar are awesome together and are not dominant over territory.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-08-16</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2015-08-16" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="180394110"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Tiger Oscar Cichlid" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Acorn</span> from <span itemprop="name">have a good filter!</span> <span itemprop="description">I got two tigers a little while ago and they seem to be very friendly to all the fish and me, I love to watch theme swim around, they are probably my favorite fish, but they do make quite a mess along the way so be ready.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2018-06-07</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2018-06-07" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="138831578"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Tiger Oscar Cichlid" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">4</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">FishLoveralways</span> from <span itemprop="name">Beautiful fish and smart.</span> <span itemprop="description">These fish will fool you.

They can get a disuses called hole in the head, and its from lack of space, and feeding them gold fish. Gold fish are the main reason why Oscars get hole in the head. For some reason Oscar's are the only fish that mainly gets this disuses and only seems to acre when they get 8+ niches. You can prevent this disuses by giving your fish by a 55+ gallons tank and DON'T feed them Gold fish even though its fun to watch but roses reds are fine. They can get 14 inches so be prepared for a big fish and a lot of work. I wouldn't recommend these fish for a beginner because of the size and what they can get if not taken care of right.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2016-09-23</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-09-23" /> </div> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> if (document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection')) { document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection').style.display = 'none'; } </script> <!--end-reviews--> <!--begin-pagination--> <ul id="bvseo-paginationSection"> <li class="bvseo-paginationItem"><a class="bvseo-paginationLink" href="https://www.petsmart.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-PetSmart-Site/default/Product-Show?pid=5230034&bvrrp=Main_Site-en_US/reviews/product/2/27544.htm">Tiger Oscar Cichlid Reviews - page 2</a></li> </ul> <!--end-pagination--> <ul id="BVSEO_meta" style="display:none!important"> <li data-bvseo="bvDateModified">y_2019, m_11, d_10, h_18</li> <li data-bvseo="ps">bvseo_bulk, prod_bvrr, vn_bulk_3.0.0</li> <li data-bvseo="cp">cp_1, bvpage1</li> <li data-bvseo="co">co_hasreviews, tv_1, tr_20</li> <li data-bvseo="cf">loc_en_US, sid_27544, prod, sort_[SortEntry(order=HELPFULNESS, direction=DESCENDING), SortEntry(order=POSITIVE_FEEDBACK, direction=DESCENDING), SortEntry(order=SUBMISSION_TIME, direction=DESCENDING)]</li> <li data-bvseo="diagnostics">clientName_petsmart</li> </ul> <!--end-bvseo-reviews--> <ul id="BVSEOSDK_meta" style="display: none !important;"> <li data-bvseo="sdk">bvseo_sdk, dw_cartridge, 18.2.0, p_sdk_3.2.0</li> <li data-bvseo="sp_mt">CLOUD, getReviews, 78ms</li> <li data-bvseo="ct_st">reviews, product</li> </ul>
