Red Tiger Oscar

Oscars move with a slow, majestic appearance, but they can be quite destructive to their surroundings, as they tend to uproot plants, and move other objects in their tanks. They are a very peaceful fish among others of similar size, but will eat anything small enough to fit in their mouths, and can quite easily be trained to eat from their owner's hand. Oscars will frequently fight vigorously with each other, which leads to much chasing and splashing, although they typically do not hurt each other. Oscars are best kept in a 200L tank with a medium textured substrate. It is also recommended to place oscars only with larger fish since they have been known to eat smaller fish that are introduced into their environment. An intelligent fish, if the oscar is raised with a set of fish, it will tend to leave them alone, but will attack newly introduced fish, even if they are of a similar size and species, as ones already there.
