No way, if you provide good clean water his stomach will win over his stubbornness every time!

My Oscar is exhibiting the same behavior. Refuses to eat pellets and will only eat frozen shrimp. Sticks to one side of the tank, continuously cleans the bottom and will lip lock or butt their tank mate. There are also times there is huge amounts of aggression if anyone or anything comes near their side of the tank. Why is this happening and what should I do about the not eating? It's been 6 or more months since no pellets and 1 month since no food at all.

Hello and welcome to OFL. I will move you to an introduction thread, as this one is quite old. However, please provide more detail on your fish and equipment. How many and what species of fish? How big is the tank? What are the filters, brand and size please. And the biggie... how often and to what volume do you do water changes?


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!
