Well someone was busy while I was working today...



It looks like thor cleared out the corner of "his?" Tank throughout today. It could have happened last night, but I over slept this morning and rushed out the door so I had to have someone else do the feeding this am.

I've been browsing this site and it looks like there are a lot of places talking bout females doing this but they always had a tankmate. Thor is alone. Could this mean that he is actually a she? Or do males do this too? Or is there no definite way to tell from this behavior?

don't think you can tell by by this behavior. Sarge does this all the time he'll just pick a corner and dig a hole. that being said I'm not sure if Sarge is male or female so its a coin toss lol

Ok, cool. I didn't think I could tell just from that behavior but all the articals I found on here only mentioned females doing it. The old gravel I had was to rough and heavy for Thor to really move around I think. So maybe he just discovered he can do it with this gravel.

That likely means nothing. I have confirmed males and females that do that every day. My male Jag is a swimming excavator, he loves to dig.


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

And just to add, Thor(yours) is too young to produce eggs, even he? is female.

Ok thanks for the added info Suprd! I also wasn't sure only being a year old that oscars would lay eggs. So it looks like (Little) Thor has just found a new hobby. And I'll go on referring to him as HIM. :)

Don't forget about Thor Girl, you could still keep the name if he is in fact a she. ;)
