Even my Porkchop at times will still sport some stripes but they do tend to fade and you get just a more subdued green on top.

This one is about a month old and a little blurry but you can see just a little stripes showing on her.

Porkchop IS a girls name! ;)

She is about three years old, so all done growing and is considered sexually mature at this point. They are kind of slow to get to that point.I would say 13-14" but cant get her still enough to get a measurement against the glass

Pearesi are BIG but so is an Oscar. Most would say okay for an Oscar so I would say okay for a Pearsei, especially since you are dealing with a 6ft tank.

I would get three to growout and watch personality to see which one would work the best. There is a way to sex but I dont recommend.... but I have done when they are little like that. The overfeed method will cause tubes to drop and you can usually tell sex at an early stage. If done once there is really no permanent damage but again I stress that I dont recommend this method to everyone. You will need to use something like frozen bloodworms that they would gorge on. This method does not work on all fish but Ive had success with pearsei when young
