Hi to all and a happy new year,
My question I need to have answered is rather complex, due to all the relevant and associated questions that accompany the main question. How do I breed Tiger Oscars
1] To breed Oscars, I need to be able to tell the difference between Male and Female fish.
2]How many "pairs" per tank?
3]How big should the tank be?
4]What would promote spawning?
5]What temperature and condition should the water be?

1, Impossible to sex Oscars unless they are spawning
2,1 pair per tank
3, 1 pair needs a 100 gallon tank
4, cooler water changes, reduce the water level and increase it over a few days to replicate a rainy season. The water quality needs to be perfect

I would suggest starting out with 6-10 juvenile oscars and letting a pair develop from that set. You cannot sex them without venting them so the best way is to observe the behavior of a group of them. You can trade in the other oscar fish or give them to other aquarists.

Mickey is correct that a pair will require around 100 gallons. My pair actually reside in a 90 gallon but it doesn't leave much room for decorating.
