Aquarium Care of Oscars (Animal Planet™ Pet Care Library)
The oscar is an intelligent and enjoyable fish to own. From selection to health and nutrition concerns, this book helps take the guesswork out of taking the best care of oscars in a home aquarium. Useful tip boxes in each chapter show every member of the household how to make the most out of owning a pet.

That’s right, oscars have a “personality,” and it’s a good thing they do, because at first glance, it would appear that oscars don’t have much going for them, especially when you compare the copious numbers of other fishes available to the hobbyist.
