Your oscar is a common Red.. Nothing special.. His coloration will NOT change..jonscilz said:ok... then this argument will be put to rest for 2 months... and when his red isnt showing by the end of february... ill post it again so we can duke it out(assuming he isnt sold to george at the shark aquarium by then- that is the reason this whole thing started in the first place)
i really have yet to see a picture of my fish anywhere - close in your reds pattern but never any yellow like mine is always displaying to some degree. he has his orange times which is what you love to exploit, but never EVER red in the past 4 months of ownership and the yellow is what i believe makes it unique... whether it be actually a "red" oscar or not... hes a yellow "red" oscar if thats the case... and well know soon enough i hope... in two months my friend!
just a common ugly brown/red... NOT orange.. MINE is orange and was born this way..
another common red oscar.
