Hi, I'm Alpino, and I am an Albino Tiger Oscar Cichlid. My species of Fish are found in South America in the Amazon River Basin. We are freshwater fish. Just a note of caution, we are an aggressive Fish for a tank, so we need to be put into aquariums with other Fish like us for us all to be happy. We're also playful and can be taught tricks. We get fairly large at around one foot long and we're hardy Fish.
We are Omnivorous, which means we eat both plant and animal matter. We are quite carnivorous, which means we eat meat. Some foods we like to eat are:
- Small Fish
- Ocean Plankton
- Various Veggies
- Various Fruits
Albino Tiger Oscar Cichlids are egg laying Fish and lay about 1,000 eggs. The eggs are well cared for and protected and usually hatch in 3 days.
Albino Tiger Oscar Cichlids can live more than 10 years.
