Wow that's crazy. So I am going to keep my Texas in it's own tank then. Can I do an all species only Oscar tank? Or do they not get along with their own species?A201 said:Make sure the new Oscar is substantially bigger than the Texas Cichlid. Although Oscars eventually grow a little bigger, the Texas has a far worse disposition and very territorial.
I've kept several varieties of Texas Cichlid, and stiil keep a couple of them. IMO, an adult male Texas Cichlid is one of the most aggessive Cichlids in the hobby.
Make sure to provide a spacious tank.
