It felt like my rhom needed to play with someone, so i bought him a 6" oscar, the rhom is 9". After taking a bite on the chin ( that's what happens when you challenge the rhom face to face) he has been hiding behind some floating plants, but it's only a matter of time............

That's just wrong. Oscar's make such good pets. I support using feeders, but to buy an oscar for the sole purpose of giving your p something to "play" with and to sit and watch him suffer is wrong.

You are so right Xenon. They are wonderful pets, and anyone that has ever owned an oscar knows they all have distinct personality.
And to watch it suffer is even worse, that would be like leaving the rat in there after one bite. To me that's wrong, and not for the purpose of feeding but for some sick enjoyment.

I agree Xenon , Something less cool than an oscar. I started with oscars and love the way they are. I don't feed my own piranha living mamals but I can accept that much more readily than the oscar.It's not even like the poor thing is being dispatched right away like might happen in a tank of RB .The Rhom might not "finnish him off" at all.

I agree.. Putting an Oscar in with your Rhom was just plain cruel!!
Putting him in with a shoal of Pygos the same size... then that I would care less for.

I was thinking of buying a realllllly huge oscar and put him the the same tank w/ my gold...the gold is around 7-8"...and the oscar is almost twice as big...but didn't have the gut

Do you all think that the OSCAR will last?...i think hez at least 10"

First of all, I like oscars, I've kept them before, but this one was in bad shape to begin with. Listen, this happens in the wild all the time, predators devour the prey, and yes, I get off on witnessing the aggresion of piranhas, whether it be a rhom or a schoal of reds, and whether it be on a piece of meat or a mammal, it does'nt matter, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I would put in a kitten or something. This is how piranhas are, are you people forgetting that you are keeping one of the most vicious fish on the planet, stop trying to act like they are overgrown guppies with teeth. I'm not trying to burn anyone who keeps piranha for the shear beauty of the fish, for I do too, but I also love that mean streak that comes with them. Btw there is no need for name calling, so to the person who called me an idiot, you could stick that comment up your ass.
