Im in the process of building a 350+ gallon tank for my oscars, as i have mentioned here before. But i came home today to their bed rock covered with little eggs. Im pretty exited about this other than they are in a 55gal tank atm so now moving them to their new home has to be postponed. :( ill catch some pictures later and post for u guys. The male is still fertilizing so hopefully i can catch his "junk" for you guys to help educate the new people to the exiting world of oscar breeding. Thanks for stopping by, -Aaron

what you can do is put the parents in their new home and leave the eggs in the 55, just tilt the stone they are on and put a bubbler stone so that it gently runs air across the eggs. this way you will have an entire 55 just for the eggs to grow up in if they actually hatch. Good luck on the spawning :) i've been tryig this too but my fish always destroy their eggs during the 3rd night.

Could it be that you have 2 females? I know the female will destroy the bad eggs including the ones not fertilized. Idk wat u guys think the sex of the O in the picture is but im pretty sure there was a small barb also sticking out. But who knows. Dunno my first time attempting breeding so well see how it goes. Luckily i have u guys :D

nah i'm 100% sure i got male/female, but too many tankmates that can spook them and make them eat the eggs out of precaution.the problem for me is they spawn on the tank bottom glass,they refuse to spawn on anything else so i can't remove the eggs. in fact both parents will tend to the eggs. if you see the eggs going white over the next 72 hours then you most likely will have 2 females, if they don't then you have a genuine couple :)

is it possible for you Os to fail their first time attempting mating? because i havnt noticed any missing eggs and theyre tan colored like they should turn wen theyre federalized. but if you look closely now you can see a bit of a clear substance floating from the eggs ( i assume this is a type of fungus) but from wat ive read the Os will eat the fungus from the eggs. i have noticed them eating stuff from the rock but like i mentioned earlier i dont notice any missing eggs so i dont think they are eating them. maybe they just missed some because they new to it just like i am hahaha -Aaron

Ok so apparently it wasnt a fungus. Came home from work last nighy and noticed the eggs were hatching! I pulled them and put them in a 3 gal pot with an air pump and a heater turned down low. Hopefully i didnt ruin them. From what ive read its best to pull them out so its easier for them to find food. Any advice?
