i have two 4 inch oscars a albino an a tiger. they are in a 55g for now an going to a 150g when they are bigger. They are not acting agressive. but they are swimming in circles around each other an will fan there tailes an swim side by side and are allways together. just wondering if this could be signs of pairing.

oscars wont pair off until they reach sexual maturity and unfortunety this happens at about 1 to 1.5 years of age or 10 inches plus......
so until then you wont really know if you have a pair or not...... ;)

Warning..I will offend you at some point!!!


my goal is simple a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all

i bet they do, growing oscars can use all the space they can get, what kind of a filtration setup do you have? canisters? HOB? 2x 75g rated filters might not quite make it in terms of turning the water over enough for 2 O's

160 gallon south american
190 gallon malawi
