Hello friends, my Oscars spawned these days, is a couple formed in the middle of 4 Oscars.
Realizing the behavior of the couple, I got tips from a breeder here from my country, I'm from Brazil.
According to him while the couple felt threatened they would hold the spawn.
So after they chose the place to spawn, I made a division.
After 4 hours I inserted the divider already had the result.
It turns out that I had a trip scheduled for the other day, so I could not keep up with them all the time.
When I returned from traveling the eggs were with fungi and the fish were not born.
Most probably in less than a month it will spawn again.
Now I want to follow up and see if the problem was actually fungi or if my male is infertile.
In the next spawning I'm hoping to be in the stone, so I can separate and use methylene blue to not give fungus.
The male is Ruby Albino.
The female is a red tiger.

Thank you and I'm waiting for your advice.

I'm sorry, my English is bad, I know the basics I use google translator.

welcome to the community..

first time see an oscar sticking the eggs at the vertical glass wall...
i thought only angel fish do that LOL!

normally, the timing of fish spawning is related to lunar cycle.
just do large water change before the same date of the month
to induce spawning under good water condition.

My problem is fungi!
I do not know if it was only the first time, or if it's because the male is infertile!
I'll wait and see!

Have you considered that you may not have a male? Have you confirmed by venting or witnessed the "equipment" exposed? Females will lay eggs without males present.


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

if you happen to see them spawning again,
try to observe with their tubes, female has a larger tube,
if both has larger tube, then you have two females...
normally, you can not see the male's tube
