Juveniles, but I'm only interested in swapping not selling them (sorry), and there's a link to their attributes in my previous post.

Added more large Haps to my wish list, I don't really expect to find them here, but you never do know.

I'll take the Gourami if you're willing to send interstate.

I wouldn't know how to send it interstate and i don't think it would be healthy for the fish although i know my oscar is not healthy for him either

You really can't send interstate unless you have access to pure oxygen, package them in polystyrene crate, and send via an overnight courier.

You may find a helpful LFS will assist with the first and second, but the third is likely to not make it worthwhile for an individual sending a single fish.

Yeah ahh well more than happy for someone in Sydney to take this guy of my hands

Also have 12 babie Baloon Mollies in my 2nd tank abotu 1 month old and growing fast shouldnt be too long before they are big enough

I don't have the heart to feed them to my Oscar, so im buying another tank maybe to make a breeder setup specially for him

You do realise, ethical questions aside, it's not "necessary" to live feed your Oscar.

Oosh i understand however would it not be a fair statement that aquariums are mini eco systems and as such we are trying to recreate a natural environment and in such an environment he would get alot of excercise from hunting

I think a healthy balance would be pellets and live food

I tend to try and feed him 1-2 times a day (they tell me 3-5 is better) so i leave a school of barbs in there and i figure if he is genuinely hungry he can hunt

You could feed him once a week and he'll be fine. Once a day is good, it's what my more grown up tank is on at the moment.

japes im thinking i might punish him not with lack of food i filled him up added some neons to distract him whilst i added 2 bristlenoses

They managed to get in un noticed and all was fine until a neon swam too close to the small bristlenose and the oscar decided to go in hard he ended up getting a mouthful of pebble no neon just my bristlenose

so i still atleast have 1 bristlenose, and 2 albino catfish once they are in they are fine he doesnt care much about the bottom fish i think i was unlucky
