 OSCAR.
 For  a  30g  tank  nothing  beats  them,  just  get  a  powerful  filter.
 Hamza(Toomanyfish)  has  beautiful  oscars,  the  pictures  were  in  the  gallery  when  we  had  a  gallery

 Yeh!!!
    Single  wet  pet,  Building  relation  ship.......
 
 Go  for  Oscar........  Feed  them  well,  Maintain  a  good  water  quality  and  they  will  out  grow,  I  would  go  with  a  30G  tank.....  And  go  for  one  oscar...
 
 Veil  tails  albino  copper  at  least  impress  me  the  most.

 hi
 Thanks  Sandeep  for  the  comment  on  my  oscars....ya  they  have  grown  much  more  than  when  the  last  snap  shots  were  taken  and  i  may  have  to  get  rid  of  a  couple  of  fish  from  that  tank  if  i  have  to  keep  all  my  6  oscars.
 Hunting  for  a  red  oscar...once  i  get  that  will  have  to  make  changes
 But  anyways  coming  back  to  the  post  iam  a  bit  disappointed  that  you  and  everyone  else  has  suggested  an  oscar...a  20  gallon  tank  for  an  oscar???We  all  have  agreed  in  some  post  or  another  that  an  adult  oscar  needs  minimum  of  55  gallons...so  i  dont  thinking  keeping  in  mind  the  tank  size  he  has  it  would  be  advisable  to  go  in  for  an  oscar.
 If  you  wanna  pet  bond  you  can  do  it  with  probably  any  fish....maybe  something  like  a  green  terror  or  a  pair  of  convicts  would  be  more  suitable  for  that  tank...you  can  keep  an  oscar  provided  u  do  actually  plan  to  upgrade  your  tank  later....otherwise  in  a  20  gallon  tank  never  would  you  get  100%  out  of  an  oscar.

 Oscar  needs  55  Gallon  minimum  and  filtration  has  to  be  x10  with  internal  filter  or  x5  with  external  filter.  Golden  rule.
 
 Also  the  tank  width  must  be  18"  for  a  full  grown  oscar

 Maybe  you  could  keep  one  Salvini  or  Firemouth  or  similar  sized  cichlid.  I  don't  think  your  tank  is  big  enough  for  a  Flowerhorn  though  they  make  great  pets

 I  would  agree  with  Elaine.
 You  might  wanna  give  us  the  dimensions  of  your  tank  rather  than  the  capacity....you  could  maybe  even  put  in  a  pair  of  convicts  if  your  tank  dimensions  are  right.

 I  would  agree  with  Elaine,  except  for  one  thing.  I  recently  saw  a  full  grown  pair  of  Salvinis  and  they  definitely  need  a  55  gallon.  I  would  however  suggest  that  the  convicts  are  a  great  idea.  Additionally,  you  can  add  a  jewel  or  a  firemouth  to  the  tank  as  a  mate  for  the  convict.  In  any  case,  make  sure  the  convict  is  the  last  addition  to  the  tank,  as  they  are  by  far  the  most  vicious  of  the  three.  
 
 The  reason  I  say  2  cichlids,  is  because  they  are  intelligent  fish  and  need  company  or  can  get  really  really  bored.  
 
 You  can  then  throw  in  a  school  of  3  yoyos  or  a  striped  raphael  (talking  catfish)  for  company  and  you  are  good  to  go.  
 
 Obviously,  you  need  atleast  a  30  gallon  to  be  able  to  do  all  this.  
 
 Here  are  links  that  should  tell  you  more  about  the  3  fish.  
 
 Convict  Cichlid
 
 Firemouth
 
 Jewel  Cichlid
 
 Yoyo  Loach
 
 Striped  Raphael  Catfish

 Allow  me  to  make  one  observation.
 A  single  pet  means  a  large  enough  fish  to  be  visible  in  a  tank  of  say  30  gallons.  Now  a  large  fish  might  mean  a  ocsar,  goldfish,  flowerhorn,  etc.  
 For  most  of  large  fish  a  30  gallon  would  be  a  small  tank.
 You  can  go  in  for  a  school  of  smaller  fish  like  neon  tetra  etc.
 You  can  also  convert  it  into  a  planted  tank.

 Hi  Guys  &  Gal,
 
 Thanks  a  ton  for  all  the  replies.  
 
 Was  on  vacation  and  when  I  tuned  in  yesterday  I  was  both  surprised  and  happy  by  the  healthy  discussion  that  has  taken  place.
 
 The  large  tank  dimensions  are  30"X15"X15"(h).  
 
 The  other  tank  is  22"X18"X15"(h).
 
 I  think  I  will  still  go  with  a  Single  Wet  Pet  concept,  probably  with  a  companion  thrown  in.

 A  pair  of  jewels  would  be  happy  in  the  tank  and  would  readily  come  to  you  for  food.The  larger  cichlids  make  the  best  Pets  but  need  more  space  than  you  have
    Let  us  know  what  you  finally  decide  on  Smile
