    Oscars are almost impossible to determine the sex. Do they get along?

    yup! They've been together since they were very small, they're the same size/age and they always swim side by side. They remain very close to eachother

    Then you are in good shape, even a male and female will fight if they have not bonded.

    I didn't know that. I got mine at the same time about 3 years ago, they've always gotten along.

    I have had alot of dealings with these guys. They are one of my favorite fish but they can be very naughty.

    I love them to bits, although they have been staying at my mom's house so unfortunately I haven't been able to learn their behavior too well since they've matured more. She's taken to them so much I'd feel terrible taking them back so I guess they're hers now! They aren't too common here, pet stores stopped selling them because people were buying them then abandoning them when they grew full size. I had to special order my pair from an exotic shop. Are they common in pet stores in your area?

    Yes, they are sold everywhere here and they put a lot of the babies in one small tank.

    Well that doesn't sound very pleasant for the poor things I guess if the customers don't complain about anything then it goes.
