The yellow tint of this fish is a natural color, it is not artificially colored with dyes or hormones. They will require a large aquarium with an excellent filtration system, plus regular partial water changes. You can try to use plastic plants and rocks for décor, but the Oscars will delight in digging and moving everything around to their own liking. Tankmates should be large enough to not be food, but not too aggressive.
