seems like my oscars finally laid eggs, after 3 weeks of cleaning the area.

well i saw a long white "tube" coming from the regular oscar, haven't seen anything on the albino yet but as they laid eggs while i was at work this was kinda hard to spot.

i did set up a livestream on my pc, low quality but now i can watch them 24/7
lights are on 9am till 4pm and 5pm till 10pm on GMT+1 so if you guys wanna see some live action (fish defending the eggs) here's the addy

so far they seem to be doing fine with the other fish, and yes there are balas in there but they don't really come near the eggs.
depth perception sucks on this cam, the tank is 2 feet deep and the slate is right in the back.
my balas usually stay on the front side of the tank

Nice one, it's always nice to see Oscars with eggs. By the way, what colour are the eggs?

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