Wild Zebra Oscar

In the wilds of the Amazon River Basin the actual wild oscar is black with some white, hence the name zebra oscar. These oscars are less common than the tank raised tiger and red oscars. Wild oscars are active and hardy and share the same characteristics as the aquarium bred varieties.
