free oscars/ breeding pair/albino and regular (vinton)




We are giving away our two oscars as we are going to switch back to smaller fish. We believe they will be breeders as they have started mating behavior and do not fight. They are very healthy and in great condition (except the black one has a small spot that has been missing from the top of his head for quite some time - I think he slammed it against a rock when he was digging the gravel out of the bottom of the tank). They are about 10 inches long each and we bought them as very tiny babies. to good home only. if you have small cichlids that you would be willing to trade, that would be great, too! thanks! text only please.
do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers


The best I could do would be a 55. Look at that albino!

If a 55GL is all you can do, walk away.....a 55GL is really insufficient for one Oscar let alone 2.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

That would a good catch. But to claim it's a breeding pair is hard to do without actually saying you've had eggs that have hatched. First thing you can do is help the "black one" get rid of his HITH, if that's what it is, since damaged missing spots will grow back in. Then there is all those babies if they do breed. It's not easy to to get rid of that many fry.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

I think it's hith. Based on other posts from the seller, the tank is stocked with Africans! :pinch:

Still 10 inches...shame to see them scooped up by a newbie. I could at least fix them up and then rehome them with my usually responsible lfs.

Or..... get 2th75s! LOL

I think HITH that has progressed that far would spread over a larger area.

It looks more like the Oscar has hit somthing and then maybe its become infected.

I want these guys badly
