 Hello,
 
 Welcome  to  fishkeeping   Smile  
 
 I  liked  your  setup  Cheering   Thumb Up   as  it  reminded  me  of  my  early  fishkeeping  dayz.(do  i  sound  like  oldies..well  i  m  not)
 But  i  think  its  a  bit  distracting..but  nice
 I  m  not  telling  make  it  dull  but  like  even  you  are  say  20m  away  you  should  be  able  to  see  the  fish  not  the  rock

 Please  do  not  make  any  changes  to  your  gravel  as  of  now,  garvel  is  a  harbour  of  nitrifying  bacteria.
 changing  gravel  will  kill  whatever  bacteria  have  developed  in  a  few  days.

 What  Sandeep  sir  said  is  right....you  need  to  cycle  the  tank  first  
 But  I  think  if  you  remove  the  ONLY  shiny  marbles  it  will  be  alright

 My  dear  Oscars  need  atleast  4  footer  tank.  You  can  keep  only  small  fishes  such  as  tetras,  barbs  etc.  in  this  tank.

 Hi  Anil,
 Except  Shellies(Multies)the  setup  is  too  small  for  any  other  variety  of  cichlids.
 For  your  setup  some  tetra  group  will  be  good,  but  please  follow  Sandeep's  advice  cycle  your  tank  for  some  time  then  think  of  introducing  any  fishes

 Just  got  some  bad  news  from  home  that  on  of  my  Gold  Fish  is  no  more  active  and  feared  dead.
 
 I  have  asked  my  bro  to  remove  it  from  the  tank  and  put  it  in  a  basket  and  see  if  there  is  any  movement.
 
 My  first  loss,  Sad

 Hi  Anil
 Welcome  to  the  hobby.
 I  will  suggest  you  to  go  for  tetras  or  a  single  discuss  till  you  have  bigger  tank.
 Regards,
 Nitin

 Dear  Anil
 That  reaction  is  because  you  seem  not  to  have  read  any  of  the  links  given  above.
 Please  tell  me  which  of  the  above  links  or  posts  given  above  tells  you  that  you  can  keep  4-5  oscars  in  a  9  gallon  tank.
 ONE  OSCAR  needs  50  g  tank  or  36*18*18  ft.
 I  have  a  single  oscar  in  50G  tank,  for  5  oscars  you  need  at  least  200  g  tank.
 I  would  also  like  to  ask  other  people  who  are  suggesting  discus,  firemouth  etc,  as  to  how  these  fish  can  be  kept  in  a  tank  of  10"  depth.
 Please  forget  about  any  cichlids  in  this  tank.
 Only  livebearers,  smaller  tetra,  barbs  can  be  kept  in  this  tank,  nothing  else.
 Rest  is  up  to  you,  it  is  your  tank  after  all.
