Oscar Behaviour? Mating?

Recommended Posts

What are these 2 doing?

They do it every night when I come home from work. Always in the same corner. They have been doing it for almost 3 weeks now. I was finally able to record it.

Extra Info: They are both just over a year old and both about 26-27cm. I have no idea of there sex. But I did notice two pink "Spikey" looking things in the Albino ones never region.

Video is stil uploading....give it about 5 minutes. :cool:

Its breeding behaviour cleaning the glass base ready for eggs

head shaking is just fish foreplay

if there not laying leave your WC then do a 50% feed some frozen treats too

but Oscars take 2 yrs to mature so dont expect too much

it could even be two girls thats quite common

see who lays next time could be the other one

They laid lasy night! I saw both of them with their tubes out last night.

I just checked when I was leaving home and they had laid on on of the logs. But when I seen them My Red Devil and Blue Acara haf also spotted them. Noticed the RD had a fat belly too. So am guessing he already ate half of them.

Next time I will have to move either the Oscars or the other fish.
