HI please find the of my 2 oscar fishes, lfs said one is albino copper oscar and the other is peacock oscar, but I really don’t know what oscar they are? As when I search by that name online none matches to this .
Hello. That is an Albino Oscar & a Tiger Oscar. Beautiful Oscars!!! I hope you have a big tank for them!!!! They get VERY big & messy!!!
The albino is a Red Albino, solid red color is a dead giveaway. And the other is not a Tiger, the red is too solid, there's no marble pattern. Looks more like a poor red, but there are some unusual variants that can come from that no bar pattern. Oscars have been proving to be rather unpredictable in the patterning since the Reds were first developed. I suspect some hybridizing of the Astronotus species (ocellatus and crassipinnis, as well as several uncertain populations) has also been causing some of the strange variations that are popping up.
Unfortunately, the things you mention for sexing are general rules for many Cichlids, but not for Oscars. Males and females have the same finnage, and female Oscars do not get fat in the abdomen like most Cichlid females. Oscars are one of, if not the most difficult Cichlid to try and sex. I've known people who claimed they could sex them by the vents, but I've not seen any proof. Only way to truly sex them is to have them spawn, at which point the question is usually moot. There are some behavioral clues, but even those aren't 100%.albino tiger oscar if u can breed them wicked if u can sex them cool males are slimer and have a higher dorsal fin and females are smaller and rounder in the tummy and there dorsal fin is shorter hope that help u and nice healthy oscars btw cheers john

Hi. They do grow fast!!!! Hope everything works out with the Red Tiger.He started nipping my Arowana so I exchanged him for a small red oscar, shop guy was surprised to see his fish grown too big in just 10 days lol
Hi. They do grow fast!!!! Hope everything works out with the Red Tiger.

Did the Oscar beat up your severum too or is that just the pictures?
your welcome mate u shoud get a pair of bristle nose to clean up the messs
Thank you Michele, Red tiger was my favourite and Iam happy for him he is doing good, small guy. Don’t have a proper pic tried turning on the light a new and a small
Clown loach got panicked so turned it off, when I introduce him,a big oscar was behind him View attachment 488818
Hey Jon you are very right they eat soooo much I really wondered what a species he is, and they make a complete mess. To clean that I introduced a clown loach in the aquarium.
When my friend gave me he was like that only, he said the Fish is stressed in couple of days he will look better. But he got lot of white spots all over his body, I removed him from tank and introduced a small green severum shop looks very cute View attachment 489148View attachment 489149
He is adorable He looks just like my baby Severums! Did the one with the white on his fins get better?
It wasn’t intentional but yes it happened I got about 200 fry out of it! Lol I had to give away most of them to the LFS.
Wow 200 fry omg great job, do the lfs give you anything in return ? Like some other fish or plants or accessories?
They have me on the list for a large pleco and I will get that for free and I am sure if I asked for other fish I would get those for free also.
It was amazing that many survived, it’s a community tank! Lol everyone said nope you don’t have to worry about babies, they will get eaten! Nope the parents were relentless! Lol
It’s so nice, you have big tree in the middle wow lol, saw the parent severum and his children what a view, it’s really so nice to see fishes protecting their fry, I had only seen a hen protecting their chickens lol. The baby severum looks exactly like my severum , earlier you said that right. Thank for sharing.
What filter and lights you have. My light is broke planing to buy a 16 watt 4 feet led light for it. And I have to buy a sun sun 304b canister filter soon, Coz presently I have a internal filter.
Iam sorry for your male severum hope you get a good one again. I know how fascinating it is, I wish I can do it in my tank too. But you can’t keep them all anyways, so one day you have to give them away. Good your tank is now normal.
You tank seems very hI fI too you spent a lot of money in there right. I am ready to spend for my tank too but my wife doesn’t like it so I control my expenses on my tank. Soon I should get a good filter
Beautiful Tank can I ask where you got the background?
