No one will yell at me. These oscars were tatered and torn when they first arrived. I rescued them from a 20 gal. Added a little salt to the water. Give them a varied diet. Frequent water changes. Just put a brand new rena filstarxp3 canister on the tank. These oscars are in top form do to all the tlc that I have been lavishing on them. :fish: Bigger tank on their horizon.

no need because I can find people around me that breed oscars in 20g tanks! lol

anyway, I have had them for 1.5 year ( since they were baby ) in this tank and its a long time that I'm planning on getting a big enough tank for them but I couldn't afford it yet. now I'm growing up +700 of their babies to sell them and get a bigger tank for parents.

Just curious how big were yours when they spawned. These two rub against each other alot and some times lip lock but nothing serious. One of them is definately dominant. I have two africans in the tank that swim with them.

they were 6.5" female and 7.5" male when they paired off and 6 months later they spawned for the first time at size of 9" and 10". second spawn was a few weeks ago with a period of 6 months!

generally I think they can try to spawn when they get bigger than 6-7" but for a successful spawn they should be bigger and near 1 year old.

yours seems to be big enough, can you vent them? see any breeding tube?
