They are young. Got them a bit larger than the usual baby size. Marked as medium so they would be approx 11 months depending on how old they were when I got them. I'm assuming the breeding type behaviour will start to happen well before they can actually breed

If it makes you feel better, I was 100% certain my RD Daisy was a chick when I got her. I was certain she was a chick right up until she hit 10" (7" when I brought her home) and still won't slow down the growth rate (doing around 1cm per month)... now I'm not so sure. Eh who am I kidding Daisy's a dude lol.

what do you do with the fries then? do you have other fish eat them or let them grow? cuz you'll end up lacking space in your tank, right?

Throw yourself in- use the wrong words, try different foods, kiss random fish. It's an adventure!

Daddadoo I'm aiming for the biggest tank possible but will eventually split them into 2 tanks if I can't get a 125 or larger. Still in waiting about getting a mortgage for the house I live in or being forced to move.

Bri putting both in a 75 still doesnt do much. Right now your 55 is really overstocked. Not trying to pass judgement cuz I had an oscar in a 55 and its just not big enough for one o let allone two. The 75 is only 20 gal more just my opinion.

P.s. i also had a small catfish with him. Had to do huge wc and also underfed. The cat never came out and didnt compete for food/territories. Eventually got rid of the cat and moved the o to a 150
