 Titash,
 Great  that  you  are  updating  the  post  ..  that  is  very  important.
 
 I  am  just  1  your  old  in  this  but  few  points,  purely  on  IMO  basis:
 1)  Oscars  are  one  of  the  "man"  among  the  fishes.  (just  like  Pulsar  among  bikes   Chuckle  ).  The  colored  marbles  as  gravel  does  not  go  with  them.  If  it  is  temporary  then  it  is  fine.
 2)  The  same  goes  for  background.  A  pure  black  background  will  bring  out  your  albinos  a  lot  better.
 
 Please  fill  in  details  like  temp  you  are  maintaining  (  i  see  the  heater  near  front  glass,  can  be  put  behind  the  filter),  food  and  timings.
 
 Keep  it  up!!   Thumb Up

 give  some  natural  looks.  add  some  driftwood.instead  of  coloured  gravel  go  for  brown  or  little  dark  gravel  which  will  give  it  brown  base  look.
 instead  of  adding  fake  plants  go  with  rock  or  caves

 I'll  be  putting  seeds  of  plants,  I've  bought  driftwoods  just  I'm  seasoning  them.  The  colored  gravels  are  temp.  I'm  not  able  to  purchase  gravels  as  the  weekly  market  is  closed  till  Kali  Puja.

 Great  looking  fish  Titash!
 
 Looking  forward  to  completed  set-up.
 
 I  have  heard  and  read  so  much  about  Oscars  that  I  am  really  eager  to  hear  more  from  Oscar-keepers  on  IAH.
 
 They  are  widely  considered  to  be  among  the  best  fish  "pets"  in  terms  of  personality..I  have  a  couple  of  Green  Terrors  and  a  Jaguar,  so  I  have  only  a  glimpse  of  what  fun  these  CA/SA  Cichlids  are  to  keep.
 
 Cheers,
 Sid
