i have a pair of red oscars about 6" each they are in a 120gal all to themselves im looking for some ideas to jazz the tank up a bit maybe some rocks wood etc i was thinking id like to go with a huge peice of driftwood and some heavy stones on the end as they are quite the decorators them selves lol anyways ill add some pics its pretty much a bare tank with some planted gravel and a little hous, ive had the oscars for almost a year and a half theyve always been together since they were less than an inch lol and are the best of friends constantly swimming parrell or against each other:)

they are quite nice in colour and not many scars considering some of the bigger ones ive seen have never had an issue with their health.they are the smartest fish i have ever seen they know me they recognize me i can feed them from my hand and ive taught them to wait for food and then when i wiggle pellet about six inches out of the water they can both jump and take it from my fingers with spot on accuracy its really amazing to see and weve been learning it over a year:):) cheers:)

Maybe if you can find yourself a large piece of driftwood stump or something...it might look kinda cool?

i would think that would be awesome id like to have a whole stump like you said with lots of branches from it something they could swim under and around but it has to be heavy enough for them not to pick it up i could always use some heavy flat stones and build around the driftwood:)
