you still have long way to go before you get them pair...
3 is not a good combination coz when the two pair up, one will be a target fish...
how big is your tank... having 3 would need a huge tank, otherwise they will not grow
once territorial issue start...

my tank is 130 to 140 not sure , this isn't their permanent home , once i get a pair i will just let the pair and sell my lfs the other unpaired oscars .

Filtration is not the issue, your tank size is the issue, as well as the unknown sex of any of your 3. Oscars can take years to pair up and produce. Having a male/female does not guarantee they will mate. Adding a 4th to your mix is a very bad idea. An Oscar is not considered adult until 12-18 months old, and by then should be at least a foot long. You are going to have problems if you stay on your current path.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

And what we are saying is that your tank is too small to raise 3 oscars till they are mature enough to pair off and most likely before they mature one will be harassed till you remove it or the other two kill it
