Description

Albino Tiger Oscar: A Captivating Freshwater Fish

The Albino Tiger Oscar, a mesmerizing freshwater fish, is a captivating addition to any aquarium. Renowned for its intelligence and striking appearance, this Oscar variety offers a unique albino twist on the classic Tiger Oscar.

Scientific Name: Astronotus ocellatus (Albino Red Tiger variant)

Water Quality: Oscars thrive in clean, well-maintained water. A powerful filtration system is necessary due to their size and messy eating habits. Regular water changes are crucial.

Water Parameters:

  • pH Level: Neutral (between 6.5 and 7.5)
  • GH Level: 8 – 12 dGH
  • KH Level: 8 – 20 dKH

Feeding: Albino Tiger Oscars are omnivores. Their diet should include a variety of high-quality foods like cichlid pellets, frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp, and even chopped vegetables.

Tank Mates: Oscars can be aggressive, especially towards smaller fish. Choose tank mates cautiously. Larger, peaceful cichlids like Severums or Jack Dempseys may be suitable in a very spacious tank.

Substrates and Tank Decorations: Oscars are known to dig. Use smooth gravel or sand as a substrate and secure decorations to avoid them being uprooted. Opt for hardy plants like Amazon Swordtails or Java Ferns that can withstand the occasional nibbling.

Suitable Plants: Live plants can be challenging with Oscars. Opt for hardy varieties like Amazon Swordtails, Java Ferns, or Anubias that can be attached to driftwood or rocks.

Sexing and Breeding: Distinguishing male from female Albino Tiger Oscars is difficult until they reach breeding maturity. Breeding can occur in captivity, but it requires a large tank and specific breeding conditions.

Maximum Size and Longevity: Albino Tiger Oscars can grow up to 12-14 inches (30 cm) and live for 8-15 years with proper care.

Behavior: These intelligent fish are known for their interactive personalities. They can recognize their owners and even perform tricks! However, they are territorial and can be aggressive towards other fish.

Things to Consider Before Buying:

  • Tank Size: Oscars require a large tank, minimum of 100 gallons (380 liters) for a single fish.
  • Filtration: Powerful filtration is essential to maintain good water quality.
  • Tank Mates: Choose tank mates cautiously due to their potential for aggression.

General Information:

  • Origin: South America (Amazon River basin)
  • Family: Cichlidae (Cichlids)

Fun Fact: Albino Tiger Oscars lack the usual dark pigmentation due to a genetic mutation. This results in their striking white body with vibrant red tiger stripes.
