My O's eat corn also. They love shrimp, peas, apples, bananas, krill, worms, crickets, flies, grass hoppers, and of course Pellets! But they beg for bananas.

I would like information about beef heart. I have heard raves about it but nowhere have I read whether it should be fed raw or cooked; refrigerated, room temp, or frozen.

Your advice will be appreciated by my Big Red and Tiger Oscars.

You can feed it almost anything you find in this thread as long as it is small enough to fit in its mouth. I feed my 2.5 in oscar freeze dried shrimp, freeze dried krill, freeze dried brine shrimp, banana, pineapple, corn, piece of eathworm. Mine however will not accept pellets but you should try and get yours to eat pellets if possible.

Thank you for the recipe, Paul. The inredients are quite a bit too pricey for me at the moment, but I will try it when I am able.

It doesn't answer the question about feeding just plain ol' beef heart, but I'm going to assume raw is OK since cooking isn't required in the recipe. I'll cut up the beef heart into small cubes and freeze them.

Thanks again for your help :-)
