How do I know if my Oscar is laying eggs?
Can two male Oscars live together?
In the wild, their diet consists mainly of small fish, invertebrates, insects and fruit. Most feeder fish found in stores that oscars can safely eat (guppies, mosquitofish) are usually riddled with parasites and disease.
Can oscars eat guppies?
Sometimes, the parents eat the fry. And sometimes they breed in a large community aquarium where other fish eat the eggs or fry.
Females can lay eggs without males present.
How do you breed Oscars?
Common breeding signs to look for in Oscars include lip locking between mates, frequent chasing of each other through the aquatic environment, shivering or shaking that is usually accompanied by tail lashing, and even nipping and biting that can result in the violent removal of strips of flesh.
