Well, seriously then, I dont think your tank is undersized for one single oscar. I know you are going to add a plec in there too, but if you keep an eye on your water quality, as I know you will - it should be fine.

The minimum size recommended that I have seen for a single O is 210litres, and you are above that.

Thanks guys i feel better now
if it does start to look cramped i will get a 6footer
its not the length thats the problem to me as the alchove is 6ft
its the width from the back wall i can only come out 16inch to keep it level with
chimney brest otherwise it will come out passed it and look daft.
so while i was going to get the rena......
im thinking should i get this one now??? instead.
i like it very much. its 50 inch not much bigger just 20 litres more

It' a lovely tank chez, but if you are thinking of getting a new tank I wouldn't spend 300 just for an extra 20 litres.

If you are thinking of getting a new tank at some time, save your pennies and go for the 6 footer-now that would give pleccy and E a beautiful home!!! Smile

Its interesting to see that they deliver almost everywhere - even Ireland which is unusual (take note MAry!!)

Apart from E head butting them

off ebay sellers websites???

Live aquatic moss balls,
these balls will help keep your aquarium water healthy
by digesting harmful toxins, they will also reduce algae
by competing with the algae nutrients.

They actually are said to be great for algae control
because they outcompete the algae by using the same nutrients and starving the algae.
In its natural habitat, their ability to move around by using the undercurrents to sink or rise in order to position themselves to receive plenty of light to carry out photosynthesis is interesting.
