Moonlight lighting cuase aggression in Oscars?!?

Postby 1020thirty » Mon Jul 05, 2021 9:13 pm

So recently I have had a problem with aggression with my pair of tiger and albino oscars and have made a weird discovery. I have noticed that my tiger will only attack the other Oscar when the light goes into it’s night cycle and the moonlight function turns on. I have watched them closely on different modes like sunlight and not on at all and there is no sign of aggression or any attacks but as soon as I put the moonlight one on my tiger not 2 mins later decides that it’s fight night. Any thoughts on this? Could it be a different factor?

There re lots of behaviours in fishes that occur primarily during twilight, both in the wild and in captivity. :thumb:
