Red Oscar Cichlid

Red Oscar Cichlid

Also known as Apaiari (Brazil), Caraussú (Argentina), or Acarahuazú (Peru).

The Red Oscar Cichlid has an extroverted personality and somewhat interactive behavior. They can learn to recognize their mate, as well as their owner. The Red Oscar is orange red in coloration with dark gray markings and the eyespot on the dorsal fin. Oscars tend to dig up plants, as well as rearrange rocks and gravel. Oscar Cichlids should be kept with fish of similar size as they will eat smaller fish. The ideal tank size for a solo Oscar would be a longer than tall tank of at least 55 gallons.
