The oscar is more of a pet than a fish. He recognizes his owners and likes being petted. I nursed him through pretty severe HITH too.

I can easily get another leporinus but this oscar has become a favorite and he’s pretty banged up :( 785DC054-A286-4701-8167-F17170D5EBD2.jpeg

Damn thats bad. Hope it works out!

Also not that big of a deal but I dont like when people say they can pet there fish, you should never pet your fish. Thats not good for their slime coat. Take care.

Oscars only live 7-8 years (barring accidental deaths).

14-year old leporinus, albeit a definite jerk, is a great accomplishment.
