Hello and welcome to OFL Could you tell us about your set-up.It's always nice to know how new owners are keeping their Oscars and we may be able to point you in the right direction if needed.Hopefully you have done lots of research and understand the basic requirements to house large cichlids.Once again welcome.

Welcome to the site. It looks like you have two. If you could post a little info on your set up and experience, you will get a lot better info on how to take care of them. Tank size, filtration, cycling, tank mates, water parameters, temperature, and diet would good for starters. The goal here is to keep the healthiest fish possible in an artificial environment.

Ist thing.....NEVER feed live fish. That's a direct invitation to disease &/or parasitic infestation.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Congrats I noticed you asked some questions about water clarity on another thread. What size tank and type of filters do you have ? Is the tank cycled ? Like the others have said dont feed them feeders get them on a good pellet asap (hikari, new life spectrum, and omega one)
