quesions about breeding oscars

so i know they lay their eggs on a large flat rock. what kind of rock is best? and where do i get one? none of my lfs have flat rocks...
also i have 2 albino tiger 1 tiger 1 lemon and 1 albino veiltailed... will the different variations breed together? and if so will they produce a mixture of the two or what?

Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

IMHO Lobster,plecos,clown loaches,and channel cat, could all be problematic if oscars decide to breed assuming(never a good idea) that you are talking about breeding or attempting to breed in 250gal tank shown in your tank blurb. I would try and find homes for goldfish in your 55gal also shown and put the breeding pair in it IF a pair shows signs of spawning activity.As for rocks to help provide some cover as well as spawning place, you may wish to visit lawn and gardenstore. Good luck!

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
