How is your tank coming along now? I'm surprised that the much smaller Oscar introduced into the larger Oscar's territory is not being picked on.

I don't believe sexing of Oscars is possible by looking at them. Hopefully you have yourself a female though! Are you hoping to breed them?

you can "roughly sex" any fish some by marking and some by fin shape. unless you vent your fish you cant be 100% sure. (but i do not recommend this)

dunno, if your really looking into breeding them and finding out what behaviors mean what (dont mean to sound like a @@@ here but do a google search on tiger oscar breeding behaviors, it will come up with lots and lots of info for you. or you could always go to the library and see if they have any fish books.
