Hi. I have a one year old oscar and i got a baby albino oscar about a week ago. They get along great but the baby also likes to hang out in the corner. I think it just might not be all that comfortable yet because i have two other little fish who like to chase it around. I hope both of our new ones are just a little shy. Good luck

I think that's pretty normal. Keep an eye out though on aggressive behavior. Oscars can be quite grumpy and territorial, and if there is much of a size difference, the 1st oscar will probably be a bully.

my oscars huddle together in the corner with the pleco during anything stressful, like water changes. when i introduced them to the new tank, it took quite a while for them to leave the corner. i think they just need to feel safe before they'll really start moving around.
