Sale price$49.99


The Albino Lemon Oscar, scientifically known as Astronotus ocellatus, is a striking freshwater fish prized for its vibrant coloration and distinctive markings. As a member of the cichlid family, Oscars are renowned for their intelligence, curiosity, and engaging personalities, making them popular choices among aquarists of all experience levels.

The Albino Lemon Oscar, a variant of the more commonly seen Tiger Oscar, boasts a unique coloration characterized by a pale yellow or lemon hue throughout its body. Its albinism results in a lack of melanin pigment, giving it a striking appearance with vivid yellow scales, often accented by orange or pinkish hues on its fins. The absence of dark pigmentation further accentuates the intricate patterning and distinctive markings that Oscars are known for, including the iconic black spots or "ocelli" on their dorsal fin and tail.

In terms of size, Albino Lemon Oscars can grow up to a foot in length (30 centimeters) in captivity, making them substantial additions to aquariums. They require spacious tanks with ample room to swim and explore, along with hiding spots provided by driftwood, rocks, or artificial caves to mimic their natural habitat.

Despite their stunning appearance, Albino Lemon Oscars are relatively hardy and adaptable, tolerating a range of water conditions. However, they thrive in well-maintained aquariums with stable water parameters, including temperature, pH, and hardness. A varied diet consisting of high-quality pellets, live or frozen foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, and occasional treats like earthworms or crickets will ensure their optimal health and vibrant coloration.

In terms of temperament, Albino Lemon Oscars are known for their assertive and sometimes territorial behavior, especially during breeding periods or when establishing dominance within a community tank. Therefore, careful consideration should be given when selecting tankmates to avoid aggression or compatibility issues.
