Assorted Veil Oscars 3-4 inch
Oscars are a South American cichlid found in the water of the Amazon Basin. In the early 1800's Oscars were given the Latin name Lobotes ocellatus, but this has been updated to Astronotus ocellatus, a hopefully more accurate name.
Oscars are fairly large fish, typically reaching lengths between twelve and sixteen inches. These fish generally live for eight to twelve years, depending on the quality of care given.
