Hello-- I was wonder why the Oscar messed with the Live Plants??? I bought 2 Plants . When I got off work and saw the plants is everywhere. I was **** alittle bit. They 've must be eating the live plant or what? if they mess with plants again. I will buy a fake Plants for good
Well, from what i know of it, live plants do bring potential problems. One is snails. Sometimes a live plant will come with some tiny snails or eggs on it that quickly multiple and overrun the tank, killing or starving the fish. And you have to keep up on any dead/dying leaves as they can give off a lot of ammonia.
Oscars uproot any plants in their tanks. I had some years ago and did some research on them because mine were doing the same thing. The theory I read was that they're eliminating any hiding places for fish that are threats to their eggs.
Yea I noticed the plant.. and I plan get fake plants soon.. my fish always hiding behide the rock. >. they not happyness when i walked by tanks. What a werid! OScar is.. Before my old Oscar enver hide , she was happy land looking at me when i walk by them
