"Otters have a skin flap that forms a pocket so they can keep their favorite rock with them. They use this rock to break open mollusks when eating. Some otters go their entire lives carrying the same rock!” source
This person is actually more or less selling their oscar with its house for one lump some (good luck buddy, nobody wants already grown oscars) and I am posting it because I am pretty sure that’s a hamster ball with a plant in it back there
maybe the fish plays with it. I sure hope it does because otherwise that’s just weird.
IM LAUGHING SO HARD HANNAH. THAT IS A HAMSTER BALL. WHY THOUGH
FUN FISH FACT!
As someone who owned an Oscar for the better part of 5 years I can tell you that the hamster ball and plant is 100% for the Oscar to play with!
A lot of people don’t know this about Oscar’s, but they’re basically like cute serrated-jawed water puppies!
They can be trained to do tricks in return for food, recognize faces, portray emotions (Which they do naturally), and even play with you! It’s very common for oscars to be trained to play fetch with things like floating ping-pong balls, and they really do enjoy it~
So in short, that hamster ball is 100% in the tank for the fish’s enjoyment, and is actually a super great idea! He could be content to push that thing around his tank all day without a care in the world~
Just make sure that if you’re gonna give him a big toy that you have a tank big enough to support it!
I did not know that I needed to see this.
