Talking about Oscars, has anyone seen the large unique pieces sold at Aqua Empire? I was amazed by the colors! It has a mix of orange like in those that we see in the common tiger oscars and grey/white from that of the WC variants that we have recently. They look like Astronotus ocellatus var. zebra as featured in the article!

P.S: I'm not related to them and not trying to promote them! Just awe-struck!

Sorry for bringing up this thread. But so far has anyone here been successful in breeding oscars? Have 8 pieces of oscars ranging from 7 to 10 inches (tip of mouth top tip of tail) and see cleaning of flat rocks.

Hope to really have success in breeding oscars.
