Hello and welcome to OFL. If I can offer anything right off the bat, keep water absolutely toxin free, cleaner than clean. Shelby will appreciate it!


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

Thank you we have been doing alot of research on the forum it has been really helpful! My husband has had Oscars before but Shelby is my first. I am not sure how to tell if it is male or female so we chose a gender neutral name

You wont know the gender until its almost full grown. At that time you can vent the fish(check its genitals). I never do that. From experience I can do fairly well with a good look at the body, still no guarantee. Seeing the fish lay eggs is a guarantee. Not all females lay eggs. Not all males can fertilize eggs. Its a tough cichlid to breed and identify gender. Treat it well, you get what you get

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