I hate oscars!!!!!!!

Post by Star on Wed Mar 21, 2012 9:10 pm

First topic message reminder :

I have been bitten by one of the babies again, and cleaning chops's tank today was a ruddy nightmare, twice he tried to bite me, I tried shooing him away with the gravel vac, but he flicked right over the top of it and head butted my arm, then because I wouldnt move my hand he shot to the surface and tail flicked so I got soaked Sad

Noodle is pretty sweet now, she will follow my hand around the tank when I am cleaning it, but I have to have the little one talking to meatball when my hands are in the tank else he goes for me, just like Chops used to all the time. I used to have to get hubby to stand one end of the tank talking to him lol

Sexing oscars is really difficult, however my theory on the first spike of the anal fin with other cichlids seems to follow suit with oscars, which is why I think meatball is male and noodle is female and Rusty, chops however because of the damage to his fins his first spike is short anyway, or Chops is a girl, that is if I am correct need my urau or true parrots to prove it Smile.

I've heard they are crazy difficult. Do you think the aggression could be a male trait? Or that it is down to the fact that they can have a range of different personalities and some are just buggers? Razz

Meatball sounds like a little sod lol.

We're lucky so far with our trouble, though since feeding her mealworms trying to keep her in the tank is so hard as she gets so excited.

Mealworms, not cheap, but crikey oscars seem to love them.
