Rescued an Oscar today

Yes yes I know Oscars require a bit more room then Bettas do, but I could not leave this boy behind. I will eventually be getting a 125 and if I can't rehome him, I'll just keep him with my other Oscar and my Jack Dempsey.

This little guy is ADORABLE!! and settled in really fast!

Meet Pollard (for those of you that know anything about horse racing he's named after Seabiscuits jockey Red Pollard, who was blind in one eye)











One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

I love Seabiscuit! I also love oscars. You did a good thing getting him.

I currently own a male betta fish, a female betta fish, two eastern painted turtles, one western painted turtle, one Chinese dwarf hamster, and a whole load of guppies.

That's the weirdest/coolest colored Oscar I've ever seen. It doesn't even look like a typical Oscar lol, nice find. S/he is gorgeous

He looks like he was malnourished. Was he at a pet shop?

Yes he was, of course They gave him to me 1/2 off though... He's already eating like a champ, first oscar I've ever had in my life that settled in so quickly!

Well that's good!
He may be a little stunted.. His eye looks bigger than it should be loowing at the other one, who's bigger than him.
Do you think his stripes will turn red once he gets some TLC?

Secretly I hope not, lol, I think the black and silver look he has going on is just so cool!

The new oscar will get a little bit more orange-ish but he/she will stay mostly that black/silver color. He/she is a Common Oscar(also known as a wildtype oscar) Thats the color you would find if you cought one in the wild,
