View Full Version : Looking for Oscar-like fish but smaller

I have kept Oscars in the past and they're my favorite fish by far. Right now, I only have a 29 gallon aquarium and that's too small for an Oscar. Can anyone recommend something smaller that still has the personality of an Oscar? The tank will be well maintained and has a lot of filtration. I'd prefer to go with two fish and I'm not thinking about Convicts. They're fun for breeding but at least the ones I've had in the past didn't have much interest in me when I went by the tank. What I particularly liked about the Oscars is the tail-wagging and also watching them hunt when they're about 2-3 inches. They get too good at hunting when they're older to be interesting.
