SO, I have two oscars, one suspected male and one suspected female. Both are in the same tank, but I swear the female only eats when she sees my mom feeding them. Beyond that if I feed them or my brother does, she doesn't seem to eat, but if my mom feeds them, she swims right up.

I know this must seem like I'm going crazy here, I feel like I am, is this at all possible or purely coincidental?

Yes it is possible. She probably feeds " the female" more often than you do. Your Mom has been associatd with food.

I usually feed them, but after a few days of her not eating my mom said "Oh it'll be fine", picks up the bag and tosses some food in, and she eats right away. Even today I fed them, the male ate fine, she swam around and ignored it, mom walks up and throws some food in, and she swims up and starts eating.

Are you sure that your mom never fed them or interacted with them? From her fine comment, it looks like she knew the answer. ;)

Nope she's only home from 6 in the evenings and on sundays, so she barely has time for anything else, was just a spur of the moment thing lol.

She's just not that into you!

Who knows! Maybe she likes your mom's "energy"....or maybe she doesn't like the smell of you on her food :)

2 Oscars in what size aquarium? :whistle:

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

My fish hates my guts, but loves my wife. So what you describe is completely possible..
