Great - I am the first!
I have a question: What is the difference between a male Oscar and a female Oscar? How can you distinguish?

Very Happy This is a quite funny question!!! Very Happy Very Happy

I am of the opinion that it is the same with humans Exclamation

Anyway, do you mean the outward appearance?

Idea There is no difference between male and female oscars which you can see. Young male oscars often grow faster than female oscars. Female oscars are more aggressive.
You can be sure that your oscar is a female one when it lays eggs.

Hope I helped you, good day.

The only sure fire way of knowing is to see them spawn.

But alot of people say that the male oscars vents look like this: oo , and the females vents look like this: Oo .

Oscar are very hard to sex unless you know how to vent them or if you have a few of em' in tank and they start pairing. You'll def. know who's a female when the oscar lay eggs. And if its a pair, then the other one would be a male. I know you didn't ask, but same goes for Buttikoferi. Have Fun Smile
