how big do nics need to be before you can sex them? also how big before they start to color up? i have my green terror and 6 nics right now in a 46 gallon bow front till the tank is built

I don't think there is really a specific size, but by 3in or so you should be able to be able to make out their sex pretty accurately. The easiest way to determine their sex is by looking at their fins. Males will have speckled fins while females will not. They should begin to color up around that size as well...

so after some reading im not sure if the oscar will work with my gt i tryed an albino but i think it died from a sever case of ich so we got a little bigger tiger and we saw alot of agression between the gt and the tiger then the next day the tiger was dead. do you think i will have better luck when i transfer them to the 300 gallon tank?

if i cant do the oscar what do you think of this

1 male gt (already have)
1 female gt
1 female nic (already have)
1 male jd (already have)
1 salvani
2-4 firemouth
10-15 giant danios (already have 5)
2 zebra pleco

Do you have a man who lets a DIY plywood box in the aquarium glass or acrylic, or you do something you like?
The women demand these zipper front leather jacket to be according to the current fashion. What you wear Women's double breasted leather jackets at cwmalls.com makes the half of the impression on the people around you.
