Nice video, you never know, you might end up with a breeding pair, I don't know if that would be good news or bad news :-)

By the way, my parents used to live in Singapore in the 60s, Chestnut Avenue, if that rings any bells

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

There won't be much you can do to stop them from forming a breeding pair. In one way it's fun and exciting if they do, but then you've got to deal with the aftermath. I can't remember her name, but we did have a member couple of years ago that used to have a breeding pair that would lay eggs every two or three weeks, I remember she had about 800 baby Oscars that died unfortunately. In a way, that was probably good, I don't know what she would come with them all.

Beautiful Oscar fish! Their names are very cool and creative, how did you get the idea to use those names?

very nice to see them with one month difference, they've doubled in size in that time.
your waterchange regime is more than good, it's discus worthy :D shows you care alot about your fish.
keep up the good work and keep the updates coming :)
t eh is hitting puberty and has developed a chin pimple, it shouldn't harm it in any way, it'll go away after some time.
