Getting started Again

Recommended Posts

 Gday guys I'm just new here I'm getting back into starting a cichlid tank again it's been some time but I love cichlids.  I sort of need a hobby after a severe back injury some what broken spine.

I got a 5ft by 2ft by 2ft tank with a  fluval fx5 

I love Oscar's but not sure how many to have and what's  good tank mates with them? Any info for me would be most helpful

Hi Headache..

Hopefully your chosen forum name wont affect your regained interest.

Oscars are great and definitely have a personality unlike other fish. 

Although they are big fish, they are not super aggressive provided the other tank mates are of suitable size. Essentially if it will fit into their mouth, they will most likely eat it.

Other large south american species would suit.

Good luck and look forward to seeing some pictures
