Unfortunately it's impossible to identify the sex of an Oscar just by looking at it. If you are an expert and know how to distinguish between the openings to the sexual organs then it can be done. The only other guaranteed way of determining the sex is when you see them actually laying eggs.

The best way to keep your fish healthy and to nurse them back to health is to guarantee that the water always stays in tiptop condition. This means that you must have a big enough tank and adequate filtration. If you haven't got a water test kit then I suggest you get one ASAP. You will be wanting to check for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH on a daily basis until everything is stable in the aquarium.

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