It would be room temp. Only plants are going in this.

oscars are not "little things"...not for long at least. they get even bigger than goldfish, and a full-grown oscar could be cramped even in a 55 gallon tank.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

I disagree. A mated pair of Micropterus salmoides would be beautiful, if state law allows them to be kept in captivity.

I blame spelling mistakes on my iPad. You should too!

So far I have some organic choice potting mix capped with play sand for substrate. The hardscape includes a piece of driftwood and a rock. I have a small Marrimo and a very small Crypt Undulata planted.
