gorgoroth created the topic: eggs again

this time i caught my O's laying the eggs, tho it still isn't clear to me which one is male and which one is female, i've seen both the reproduction organs, which one is the biggest? the male or the female?

i'd really need to invest in something to seperate the tank when i have eggs...

females is bigger, and more blunt. Male is more pointy, like a small thorn.

You now know that you have at least one female :)

My albino is def 12" and "she (I think)" was bigger and very long and pointy. My tiger Oscar is 8" at max and "his (I think)" was short and blunt. I thought only a full grown Oscar can only lay eggs, cause if that is the case then my albino layer the eggs.
