Haven't posted for a while so here is a quick vid of my two Oscars.
Have had these two for 3 years next month, one is a good 12inches while the other is just under 12 inches.
They have a little Bristlenose as a tank mate and almost tolerate him, but he is smart enough to keep out of their way.
Tank is a 150 gallon filtered by fx6 and a sponge filter.
Still not sure what gender they are but every now and then they do their ritual dance with lots of gravel moving and settle down again.
The good thing is no aggression so maybe 2 females who knows.

Great looking fish :happy: The red colour around their gill plates/pectoral fins is soooo bright! Nice job.

Thanks D means a lot from someone with your experience.
Yes 5x2x2 I know you're a big advocate of bigger footprints but space was my problem otherwise would have gone for a 6ft, my 2 girls(?) seem pretty content though.
