I have two baby oscars I've had for about 2 months and I've noticed that they show ABSOLUTELY NO aggression toward one another. They constantly follow each around and will not swim by themselves. I'm wondering if this is a sign that they could be possible partners when they reach an appropriate age or is it just that they have a calmer temperant and get along well?

Hi. Could be. But won't be sure they a pair till you see eggs. Or just great tank mates. But again the dark side can surface when they get older and the switch is flicked. What size tank are they in?

Could be anything really. You may have 2 females that tolerate each other. You may have an m/f pair. You may even have 2 males that have not yet become territorial. Only time will tell. Oscars are not sexually mature until about 18 months. Yours could be lifelong pals, it could all go bad tomorrow. Just keep an eye, if one becomes dominant and starts with heavy aggression, you will have no option other than to separate


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

They are currently in 75 gallon tank with a 7 inch tire track eel, 8 inch pleco and a 5 inch pictus cat. I'm running a sump to cope with the large amount of bio-load produced.
