    Do bumblebee oscars usually have green eyes? Or are the ones at predatory fins the only ones and the price can be justified?

    Holy crap this guy built a giant cichlid aquarium

    So this aquarium is definitely crazy, but what I really liked and want to do is keep live plants with my Oscars, Dempsey, Vieja and Lima. Currently I have them in a 180 and my Oscars always destroy my attempt at live plants...how big of a tank would I need for them to leave them alone?
