Ando created the topic: want to move breeding pair

Hi all, its been a while, sorry :( anyway yesterday I noticed 2 of my Oscars in my community tank have laid some eggs, now realising that the eggs will most likely not survive, I got to thinking of taking the pair out and im just wondering how they will cope with being disturbed, what are the chances of them getting freaky again as I don't want to move the others in the community and id like to
give them a chance to breed.... Oh and the parents and eggs are behind a partition.

i am not breeding my oscars but i used to see them laid eggs.
i normally switch the female a week after laying and the new
female will lay eggs in a week... this is how i've got new eggs
every two weeks LOL!

however, if your fish is not used of being transfer from one tank
to another, they may sulk for a while until acclimatized with the new tank

hope this help!
