 Hi,
         Its  winter  now.  Did  you  by  any  chance  use  a  heater  without  an  automatic  cutout  or  a  not  working  properly  cutout  in  your  Oscar  tank  and  forget  to  switch  it  off??????That  definitely  is  one  time  when  they  sure  will  leap  out  of  the  tank.  Sad

 Hi  Trevor
 
 When  the  Oscars  jumped  up  it  was  April,  not  now.
 
 The  bottom  line  is  carelessness.

 Hi,
 
   My    name  is  Sridhar.  I  am  a  Network  Engineer  by  profession  working  in  Wipro  Technologies  Bangalore.  I  have  been  raising  fishes  for  the  past  8-9  years.  My  most  prefered  fish  of  all  is  the  Oscar  (of  which  I  have  12).  I  am  in  search  of  getting  a  breeding  pair  but  still  not  lucky.  I  have  four  glass  tank  (110  gallon,  2x55  gallon  and  45  gallon)  and  two  cement  tank  (one  housing  5  Oscars  and  another  one  housing  varieties  of  mollies,  guppies)  and  a  pond  (which  has  lot  of  goldfishes  and  some  angles).  Of  this  only  two  tanks  are  here  in  Bangalore  and  rest  of  them  are  at  my  home  place  in  palghat,  kerala.I  am  planning  to  add  Discus  and  Arowana  also  to  my  collections.  Planning  to  add  two  more  6  feet  tanks  soon(  one  for  discus  and  another  for  Arowana).

 Hi  Sridhar
 
 Good  to  note  you  are  a  great  fan  of  oscar.  To  find  a  breeding  pair  it  is  always  suggested  that  young  juvenilles  about  6-7  are  let  in  a  larger  tank  and  observed  closely.  When  they  grow  out  the  breeding  pair  establishes  always  staying  together.  Then  comes  the  question  of  laying  eggs  and  fertilising.  But  once  established,  they  stay  out  together  throughout  their  life.  Very  interesting.

 Hi  Venki,
 
     I  tried  that.  The  five  oscars  which  are  in  the  cement  tank  was  bought  when  they  were  1-2  inch  in  size  and  now  they  have  grown  close  to  10  inches  in  one  and  half  years.  But  still  no  luck.  I  have  another  four  in  a  six  feet  tank  of  which  one  seems  to  be  a  female.  I  am  still  not  100  %  sure  that  it  is  a  female.The  have  reaches  6  inches  in  size.  I  can  only  be  sure  when  they  grow  another  two  inches  because  that  is  when  they  reach  sexual  maturity.

 Hi  Sridhar
 
 The  layman's  concept  of  identifying  females  in  oscars.  Female's  dorsal  fin  has  a  black  dot  /  patch.  
 
 Of  course  the  venting  methods  of  u  shape  and  v  shape  for  femlae  and  males  respectively.
 
 But  on  oscars,  the  pairing  is  the  key.  Even  if  you  identify  male  and  female  -  pairing  will  not  occur  if  not  compatibel.
 
 Oscars  are  unpredictable  hulks.  This  is  the  best  part.
 
 Also  at  1-2"  oscars  cannt  pair.  They  must  be  3-5  "  juvenilles.  It  is  only  during  this  time  -  they  show  out  their  dominance  and  fight  for  space.  On  a  large  tank  smaller  fishes  do  not  realise  or  require  their  need  for  larger  space.  Ideally  i  suggest  a  3'  tank  with  5-6  juveniles.  The  stronger  males  attack  the  weak  ones.  During  this  time  if  there  is  a  female  and  if  our  male  is  attracted  he  will  pair.  The  female  too  will  adore  his  dominance  and  get  attracted.  They  will  always  stick  together.  This  when  noticed  must  make  us  separate  them  and  move  them  to  a  larger  tank.  When  moved  to  a  larger  tank,  they  surely  will  breed  if  is  a  breeding  pair.
 
 But  remember  oscars  are  gentle  giants.  If  unobserved  the  attacks  of  dominant  ones  might  be  fatal  for  the  less  dominant  ones.

 You  are  right.  In  my  case  since  the  five  adult  ones  are  in  a  large  cement  tank  (9  x  3  x  3  Feet)  i  have  never  till  now  seen  them  fighting.  But  in  my  six  feet  tank  initially  i  had  6  of  them  but  had  to  remove  two  smaller  ones  to  a  seperate  tank  as  they  were  constantly  fighting  with  the  2  lager  albino's  i  have.  I  was  surprised  as  the  larger  ones  were  almost  double  the  size  of  the  smaller  ones  and  still  they  never  retaliated.  The  smaller  ones  were  the  common  oscars.  I  have  heard  that  they  are  the  most  agressive  of  all  the  varieties.  Do  you  have  a  photo  which  shows  the  black  spot  in  the  dorsal  fins  you  mentioned  in  the  earlier  post.
