Not to be rude, but this sounds incredibly like a troll.

If it isn't, get that oscar a nice big tank NOW. Having one in a 10 gallon is a joke to be frank and asking what OTHER fish to put in with him/her is very irresponsible behavior (even more irresponsible than having an oscar in a 10 to start with!).

Oscars are very difficult to sex. Essentially, you won't be able to sex a single fish; the most reliable way is to see if they pair off and see which one of the pair lays the eggs. If you just have the one oscar, you don't really need to worry about the sex.

Just as a heads up, this isn't the way to get answers on this forum. You were told in an earlier post that they are virtually impossible to sex. If you want to know, use some initiative and find out for yourself.

As far as I know, the only real way to sex oscars it by looking at the shape of the genital papillae, but this is only visible when they spawn.

The tank is still far too small in my opinion. It will be alright for a while, but I have seen many oscars well over a foot long. Assuming it's a standard 55 (48" x 13" x 21") it could potentially grow as big as the tank is deep..

okay thank you...and no disrespect but i think that this forum is to find information and also discuss the processes and other inputs ect. but the only way to inform yourself is to ask questions and i think u have it all in a mis-understandable meaning so thank you very much...no more input needed by u thanx a lot but believe it or not u helped me a lot

when you said they were "impossible" to sex its not impssible because i have successfully sexed them and they are not living happily in my 98 gallon tank thanks for your help
