Thanks!
The O is in the 14" range and around 2 1/2 years old.
Chocolate is in the 10" range and around 5 yr and the Sevs are around an inch shorter (Green Sev is around 3 and the Rotkeil is the oldest at around 8 ).
The Dollars range between 4" and 6", spotted ones are the same age as the Chocolate, while the standard ones are maybe 1 1/2.
I'm talking total length.

That's one mighty fine collection of healthy fish, a credit to your fish keeping practices. You must get lots of satisfaction knowing how well your fish are cared for. Thanks for sharing.

The tank looks great. I especially like the Rotkeil. Did you LFS have that or did you order it in?

I got the Rotkeil from Big Al's in Oakville Ontario, store has since closed, but the Mississauga store has a great fishroom.
:thumbs:
The Oscar is a big fan of Northfin 10mm Carnivore pellets.
I also use Northfin Tropical Sticks, 2 and 6 mm Krill Gold along with Zoomed Spirulina20 flake.
Those are my staple foods.
They get earthworms and some frozen goodies as treats, along with the occasional crayfish for the O.
I also use freeze dried shrimp injected with Kent Zoe vitamin supplements as occasional treats as well.

Weekly 70%+ water changes and a lot of filtration is also key.
I run an Eheim 2262, a Fluval FX-5, an Eheim 2217 and a Marineland Magum 250 along with a pair of Koralia 800 power heads.
