OK so one of my heaters went out and while only having one heater ( around 65 degree water) my os spawned. I'm curious if the eggs will hatch and the fry survive in around 65 degree water. Thanks

Is your thermometer a glass thermometer or a digital thermometer? Did you see the other oscar fertilize the eggs?

Sometimes under duress (extreme temperature change or sickness), fish will drop the eggs.

I have no thermometer *yikes* I can usually tell the temp by touch. So that's where I got the 65° not positive on that number just a guess. I plan on getting another heater ASAP just curious if the eggs are ruined. Guess the only true way to tell is to wait and see.... they still have that tan color and everything like they're supposed to. Oh and they chose a different rock this time... strange...
