I am just curious as to what you guys feed your Oscars, because most of you have some amazing Oscars! Also, if you could post the most colorful pic of your Oscar, that'd be cool! I love seeing your fish!

I feed mine frozen krill, brine shrimp with spirulina, and New Life Spectrum. (frozen every other day)

Thanks!

This is my Oscar, his name is Oscar haha. :laugh: I feed him pellets, blood worms, brine shrimp, tilapia, crickets, and more. His favorite seems to be any type of huge piece of fish/meat or blood worms, then for runner up would be crickets. He hates pellets but hey they are good for him! B)

We aren't joking when we say water changes and Prime are the best solution to a problem.

I feed him 2-3 times a day. What about you? I'm trying to make him grow a lot.. so that's why but when he's bigger, I won't feed him as much.. but what can I say, I like to spoil him. :P

Here's my Oscar named Red.... almost 2 yrs old.



He gets fed twice a day...

Mornings - pellets
Evenings - blood worms, frozen crickets or meal worms
Monthly - feeder fish

There is a fine line between sanity and insanity.... Come walk it with me!

I love your Oscar, Brooksie.. I thought he was much older though, 2 years and he looks quite the beast. B)
