Thank you Rocksor
I have done a water change
The Oscars seem very happy and demon may be a girl because I think she's holding eggs she has not laid them yet but her belly looks bigger. She is acting very normal but is rubbing against the gravel and she will not leave Olaf´s side at all

Um, they don't hold eggs until after 18 months of age, where she should be at least 10 inches long by that time.

Ohhh I didn't know that
Maybe it was the angle I was looking at her
I hope I have a male and female
And see them mate and lay eggs

What was your tank's pH before using the pH down? 7.8?

Again, you need to know your the GH and KH of your water. If you have well water then it is most likely very hard and you may need to do something to soften it. If you're using city water then you can call or e-mail the water company and ask them what the GH and KH of your the water is. This is what I did ... e-mailed them telling them that I kept aquariums and asked if they could tell me the approximate GH and KH of my tap water. You can also get an api test kit for GH and KH.

If your GH and KH are moderate, you can use driftwood, peat or something else to bring the pH down. If the values are high, you should use something to bring the values down. If they are low, your oscars should be fine in the water.
