Oscars and Classical Music. Or, How to lower your blood pressure.

25 Jan

I have two big Oscars in a 75 gallon tank. What surprises me is how graceful they are. They just float through the water, moving effortlessly, in total command of their world.

I play the radio while working on my fish tanks.I don’t know anything about classical music but it fits so well with fish-watching. Try it!

Especially with the Oscars. I think mine are a pair. They always stay in close contact, barely twitching a fin to feel the others presence.

There are 2 Jack Dempsey’s, a Red Devil, and a large Plecostomus in the Oscar tank.

You’ll find Oscars sleeping on their sides in the morning.

As serene and graceful as the Oscar’s appear, I make sure to keep them well-fed so they don’t turn into murdering maniacs.

The Red Devil. Do not adjust your eyes, this fish is yellow.

    I feel you on the “murdering maniacs” sentiment.
    I’ve watched oscars devour live mice, it’s not a pretty sight. For such pretty fish they can be incredibly aggressive.
    I’m glad you have them in such a nice size tank! I hate seeing them crammed into small tanks for no reason!
