Lemon Oscar


21 in stock

SKU: 608741E


A selectively bred form of the popular Oscar, the Lemon Oscar displays vibrant yellow and gold coloration as its name suggests. A large growing, predatory fish, Oscars require large aquariums and should be kept with similarly sized tankmates. Although Oscars have earned a reputation for aggression, they are fairly peaceful for a large cichlid and if given ample tankspace will do well in a mixed community of large sized fish. Feeding a varied diet of high quality prepared and frozen foods will help ensure their best colors as they grow.
