I am just looking for your guys opinions or ways on how to tell if you have a male or female?

As far as I am aware there are only two ways to positively identify a male and female. You can either carry out "venting" which involves inspecting the sexual organs. Obviously this will only work if you know what you are looking for. The only other way that you will know you have a male and a female is if you have eggs to hatch. You can then watch the Oscars as they are laying eggs and see which is which. Other than that, I don't know any other way that you can determine the sex of an Oscar

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Have you actually got two Oscars at the moment?

I have two but one is to small at the moment to tell. I was just looking for ways once it grows up.

Venting is not 100% guaranteed. Even if they were opposite sex, there is no guarantee they will pair up.

You just wait it out for the next 2 years, and you will know 80% of the time if it will work. It's not unheard of 2 females pairing up
